Safe Control of Operations (SCO)

Following discussions with employers across the Gas industry, Energy & Utility Skills is extending all EUSR SCO registrations under the current SCO scheme.

This extension will be applied to all individuals with an EUSR SCO registration expiring between 1 March 2020 and 31 October 2020. All EUSR SCO registrations expiring between these dates will be automatically extended to 31 January 2021.

This extension of current SCO scheme EUSR registrations will give employers and individuals time to arrange and complete their renewal training and assessment on the new SCO scheme – due for launch in October 2020.

Once the renewal training and assessment has taken place, the start date of the renewal registration will be from the original expiry date and not from 31 January 2021.

If you have any questions relating to this, please do call or email us.

EUSR Support team, 8.00am – 5pm Monday to Friday, email: or telephone: 0121 745 1310 (select option 1).
