Important changes to the SSSC application procedure

The SSSC has reviewed the application for registration process and are implementing a key change to make the process more straightforward for both the applicant and the employer.

From 1 February 2014, applicants will no longer be required to provide copies of their identification documents.

Previously, the SSSC asked for verified copies of applicants’ birth certificates and passports along with their application form.

This change will make it simpler for applicants and employers to complete the SSSC application process. In particular it will streamline online applications through MySSSC as there will be no delay waiting for identification documents to be received through the post.

When you are completing the online endorsement you will no longer be asked to confirm if the supporting documents have been verified. You will only be asked to confirm this if the applicant has noted on their application that they have a relevant qualification as qualification certificate(s) will still need to be verified and sent to the SSSC.

If you require any further information or advice about this change or any other matter in relation to registration, please do not hesitate to contact our Enquiries Team by telephoning 01382 207101 or by emailing [email protected]

Workers can apply for registration through MySSSC.
