CHAS new E form process

CHAS new E form Process

In 2016 CHAS have introduced a new system where you can apply for your CHAS direct on their online portal. Previously you were only able to pay online and had to submit your documents separately.

The online E form Process is not available for groups or for other members of the SSIP umbrella group they need to contact You will also need to use the old way of applying if you a Designers or Principal Designer.

The new  process is different as you will need to pay for your CHAS on submission. Before you start your application you need to make sure you have everything you need to hand in electronic format:

  • Examples of Risk assessments and Method Statements in situ on previous jobs
  • COSHH Assessments specific to your business
  • Evidence of Health & Safety Training specific to your business and employees
  • Evidence of Contractor Management & Competence Assessment
  • plus other necessary documents
  • valid payment method

Once you have everything in place start the process by clicking here:

Once you have made payment your application will  be assigned to an assessor and they will login and commence the assessment. The assessment can take up to 10 working days and this can result in a pass or feedback requiring more information. All updates will be sent to you via the E Forms system.

The assessment process remains the same whereby, if more information is needed you will need to provide this to get your certificate.

Using the E Forms system means that once you have been passed by the assessor a confirmation letter and an electronic copy of your certificate will be uploaded to your account.  You will then receive a hard copy of the certificate & accreditation pack post within 10 working days.

If you are unsure if you have the right information or would like some support to complete the accreditation please get in touch.
