Certificate status

A configuration option is available to allow a status to be set on a safety certificate - this can be useful where a safety certificate has been given but, due to it not meeting various conditions, it cannot be deemed as completely satisfactory until various conditions have been met

This functionality allows:

  • Specific status options to be set on a specific certificate types
    For example, gas & electrical safety certificates may be the only types where status options are needed

  • Different status options to be set per certificate type

  • Status options to be customised to meet business requirements

  • Certificates to be reported on by status

Once certificate status options have been set-up (as outlined above), further configuration options are available which allow specific certificate checks (within the certificate checklist) to be added in relation to the status set on the certificate
For example, when an electrical safety certificate status is set to Unsatisfactory C2, this could add 3 further checks to the checklist
