What happens after I submit my application?

OFTEC will review your application and will contact you if we need any more information. Applications are usually processed within 10 working days and you will be contacted by email or by telephone to confirm your initial period of probationary registration.

All new applications for registration are subject to an initial evaluation of your business within the scheme rules. This will be carried out by your regional OFTEC inspector who will arrange this within three months of you joining. For further information on your initial evaluation please download this information sheet.
