Status of DTAS Members' Depots

Green indicates that it is more than six weeks until the current certificate expires.
Amber indicates that it is less than six weeks until the current certificate expires.
Red indicates that the current certificate has expired.

In view of the current COVID-19 restrictions issued by each individual country (and the instructions contained in them re travel), as well as the guidance issued by a number of companies, the DTAS Management Committee is recommending that DTAS audits should be held on a remote basis until the respective restrictions in the relevant area have been lifted.

In certain cases, however, when it is not possible for the audit to be conducted on a remote basis, and with the full agreement of both parties, a physical audit may be held.  Such audits will be subject to full compliance with any COVID-19 requirements that are in place, both at a national and local level and at the individual site (e.g. correct use of PPE, regular hand washing, social distancing etc.) and a suitable risk assessment having been undertaken.

To enable sites to have sufficient time to schedule their audits (and allow the maximum 28-day period for rectification of any non-compliances), we have issued a further two-month extension to those sites whose revised expiry dates fell before September 1st and a one-month extension to those sites whose temporary extension date fell in October.  The temporary extension dates for those sites which fall from October 31st onwards will remain in place.  

Both the current and revised expiry date for each depot's certificate are shown below.

The scheme will continue to operate and members are required to comply with all DTAS Standards at all times.
