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.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:   In light of the restrictions imposed as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, DTAS had previously taken the decision to suspend all physical audits (with effect from March 19th). The DTAS Management Committee has now issued additional guidance that (with effect from May 12th) a temporary, three-calendar-month extension will be added to the current expiry dates of all certificates and that, to retain their accreditation and protect the integrity of the scheme, each member should carry out an additional self-assessment (including sub-depots), using an annotated version of the Scheme Standards, no later than four weeks in advance of their revised expiry date, and submit it to the Scheme Administrator for review. 

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

When the current restrictions have been lifted, a physical audit will be carried out for each depot.

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