NSTS is keeping in regular communication with all the relevant industry bodies & will publish updates as information becomes available.
Red Tractor Assurance scheme members are required to have PPP application equipment tested to the defined frequency. If there is a specific and legitimate reason why equipment testing cannot be completed to this frequency it is recommended that you contact your Certification Body to discuss how best to manage this.
