Industry Trends & Challenges
Historically, the process of inspecting and issuing certificates for Gas (CP12) and Electricity (EICR) safety compliance was a manual, paper-based task, often taking weeks to complete.
The process would entail the manual completion of a form which would then be returned via post for processing. Once it reached its destination the details would be keyed into a back-office system and a certificate would be generated and issued.
This elongated and extremely dated process was flawed at a number of points, with forms having the potential to be mislaid and the potential for manual data entry error.
