Continuing regulatory histories

Page last updated: 12 May 2022

As part of our new approach to registration we are changing the way we display a location’s history.

This will mean that the ratings information and inspection reports will stay with a location when it moves address or changes ownership. This will ensure:

  • Greater transparency for the public
  • Providers will not lose any existing ratings for their locations.

This change will come into effect from 1 April 2019 and will apply to all registration applications completed on or after this date.

We have been working in coproduction with providers, the public and other key stakeholders to develop this approach and the guidance on it.
