I agree. It was already obvious that just paperwork does not override recognised competence, which the HSE has left accreditation schemes to the industry. Through just OSHCR the potential for a registered practitioner is not necessarily recognised by the very Industry one claims to service. For example some claim to be in Oil & Gas and never heard off IMCA, OGP etc., let alone the required industry competency scheme as recognised years back by the HSE themselves. A register has a place , but is not proof of competence as understood in industry and clients know their industry better than many of those registered.
