Guidance notes for Accreditation Categories

The Construction IOM Accredited Scheme is administered by Construction Isle of Man and application may  be made by any Isle of Man businesses concerned with construction related activity.  

The Scheme is divided into two sections; General Categories and Specific Categories. Those businesses  seeking to be included in the General Categories section will be required to demonstrate ‘all round’  construction skills and experience in that area, and the direct employment of suitably experienced and  qualified personnel.  

Businesses applying to join specific categories will also be required to demonstrate experience and/or  qualifications to operate in those areas.
