It is vitally important for the protection of consumers that we are made aware of any changes which may affect your authorisation at the earliest opportunity.

Such changes may include:

  • your entity’s structure and whether it may become the subject of a merger, or takeover
  • whether you intend to cease trading
  • changes to personnel, including any issues of prior conduct
  • changes to areas of work undertaken

You can do this by using our Application to Modify the Terms of CILEx Authorisation. Depending on the change requested, you may need to submit an additional form, for example, an Approved Manager application where a new manager is to be appointed.

We will acknowledge receipt of any written notification within two days. In the case of a minor change(s), we may amend our records relating to your entity accordingly.

In the case of a fundamental change(s), we will contact you within 14 days to obtain any further information relating to the change(s) and then consider any further action that may be necessary.

We will assess the impact of the change(s) on the Authorisation of the Authorisation Entity or Approved Manager(s) and advise you accordingly.

If you have any questions regarding the changes to your authorisation, please contact us at
