The statement that 'the first wave of the new breed of approved certifiers has yet to take place', in the article about the newly launched Scottish certification scheme (AJ 02.06.05), is incorrect.

Structural Engineers Registration was appointed by the Scottish Buildings Standards Agency in November 2004 to run a scheme for Approved Certifiers of Design (Building Structures) and Approved Bodies for Certification of Design (Building Structures). The scheme, established as a result of a joint initiative by the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institution of Civil Engineers, started to accept applications in December 2004, and, by 1 May 2005, 198 approved certifiers and 78 approved bodies were on the registers. To date, 269 approved certifiers and 130 approved bodies have been registered.
