Making changes to your registration
New registration forms
From 1 April 2015, you must use our new registration variation forms which are available on this website.
If you need to make changes to your regulated activities, the locations from which you provide them or any conditions of your registration, you will need to send an application to us.
The form you need depends on the changes you want to make, whether you're a registered manager or provider and, in some cases, the type of service you work in. You should use our form finder tool to help you find the right one for you.
Changes to conditions and locations
We place conditions on the registrations of providers. In most cases, these are routine and define the locations where the provider may operate or set limitations upon the service.
Where we have concerns about the quality or safety of the service, however, we may also set other conditions requiring improvements and setting timescales for them to be made.
You can find all the forms you need for each application on the pages below.
Changes to partnerships
We changed the way we register partnerships in February 2013 to make the process more efficient.
The members of the partnership are now included as a condition of the registration, so if your partners change, you can just apply to update this condition.
If you registered with us before this (and so do not have a condition relating to the partners), you must cancel your registration when there is a change in the membership and the newly formed partnership must apply as a new provider.
Remember: you should only use these forms if you're registered with a condition listing the members of the partnership.
Changes to regulated activities
If you are changing the services you offer, you need to ensure you're registered for the correct regulated activities. This might mean adding and removing activities or even cancelling your registration entirely.

Send us the forms
When you have finished the form, you should check you have not made any of the common errors we find that are relevant to your application.
Read the Common errors we find in applications.
Once you have completed the relevant forms you will need to send them back to us, preferably by email.
You can send to our dedicated address HSCA_Applications@cqc.org.uk.
