Implementation of IRR17
RPA certificate holders who have been issued with a Certificate of Competence under IRR99 are advised that the certificate will continue to be valid up to its declared expiry date.
For initial (new) applications for an RPA Certificate of Competence, continue using the existing guidance and proformas on the RPA2000 website. This will also mean acceptance of evidence gained by applicants within the preceding 5 years that may reference IRR99. Where IRR17 differs significantly from IRR99 then annotate your evidence explaining how that evidence meets the requirements of IRR17.
