If you run an adult care home, a children’s home or a domiciliary care agency you were required to complete and submit a focused SASS using CIW Online (External link). The deadline to complete and submit your SASS was 15 November 2017.
Only the Responsible Individual or Registered Person could complete the SASS.
You were required to complete your SASS regardless of whether your service is operating.
Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act 2016
The completion of the SASS was the first step as part of the transition process of the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act 2016 which will come into effect from April 2018.
If you intend to continue to provide a care service after April 2018, you will need to re-apply for registration under the Act. More information about re-registration is available on our ‘Re-registration’ page.
