If you run an adult care home, a children’s home or a domiciliary care agency you are required to complete and submit a focused SASS using CSSIW Online (External link). You have until 15 November to complete and submit your SASS.
The Responsible Individual or Registered Person must complete the SASS. If your service(s) has more than one Responsible Individual or Registered Person, you should agree on one individual to complete and submit the SASS on behalf of the service(s).
You will need to complete the SASS regardless of whether your service is operating.
Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act 2016
This is 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.
