Consultation description

The Department for Transport is seeking views on proposed changes to street works qualifications regulations in England.

Street works are carried out by the 4 main utility groups:

  • water
  • gas
  • electric
  • telecoms

Street works undertakers have certain obligations to ensure operatives and supervisors are suitably qualified. The regulations under consideration establish procedures to become qualified, register and re-register certificates and they set out the various prescribed qualifications.

The regulations have given rise to a number of issues over the years. These proposals are intended to address these and to rationalise street works training and accreditation processes in England.
