Provisional Status (contractor) application

Provisional status is for contractors that are providing services to the domestic and/or commercial market within sectors represented by the PCA  but don't yet meet the requirements for full membership.  They may be;

1. A newly formed company (thus not meeting the requirement for 2 years trading), but can demonstrate that it is being run by an experienced person employing qualified surveyors.


2. A well-established company that does not employ qualified surveyors (thus not meeting the requirement that all surveyors must have the relevant qualifications) but can provide 2 year’s full trading accounts and can demonstrate previous relevant experience.

Please note, companies in provisional status are not entitled to use the PCA logo and do not get a vote at the AGM.

Benefits of PCA Membership >>

A bit about the application process.

Membership is only granted to companies who can demonstrate they meet a number of criteria including technical competence, financial solvency and Health and Safety requirements.  Contractors are also audited by one of our Technical Managers as part of the application process, and every 2 years thereafter to ensure standards are maintained.   Although the process is comprehensive, it ensures customers and clients can be confident they are using the best in the industry when choosing a member.  Companies applying for Provisional Status are still subject to the same process,  but the PCA team is on hand if you need any help or guidance with your application.

Companies may remain in Provisional Status for a maximum of two years, during which time they must ensure they have completed the necessary requirements for full membership (that is, ensure all surveyors have achieved the relevant qualification or submit their 2 year's trading accounts).  Companies who do not fulfil the necessary criteria within two years may be removed from the Association without further recourse. 

If you feel your company/organisation meets the standards for Provisional Status, please click on the button below to begin your application.
