i'm sure the cscs scheme was originally meant to be being brought in for domestic works, it was supposed to become law in 2010 that all trades working in domestic properties would have to have a cscs card to prove they were qualified to do the work they were doing.
Sure I read that back in 2006 when I first signed up to CSCS . i think it got abandoned during the recession
This is going to be a wake up call for a lot of one man bands and smaller company's . They should take the time to familiarise themselves with the regs .
