Bat Earned Recognition (ER) – Extension of Accreditation Period beyond the Pilot

Natural England has confirmed that the period for Site Registration submissions under the Bat Earned Recognition (ER) Class Licence by ER Consultants accredited under the ER Pilot has now been extended from 31 December 2022 to 31 March 2023. This will enable ER Consultants to continue submitting Sites Registrations under the ‘Beta phase’ of Bat ER.

Richard is accredited to level 3 and able to register sites with all species and types of roost. William is accredited to level 2. We recently registered a site with 22 roosts and 10 species. Natural England aim to issue registrations within 3 weeks. Please get in touch if you have a project we can help with.

Further details of the Bat ER Pilot are available on the CIEEM or BCT project pages.
