Keep up to date with licence changes - Active Checks
The best way to keep up to date with your labour provider’s licence status is to register for the ‘active check’ alerts service.
This sends you direct updates to keep you informed of any changes to your labour provider’s licence, such as a compliance inspection or a revocation.
Please note we have limited access to our office.
Please do not send anything by post. Send all communication via email to: email@example.com
It’s very simple to sign up, just follow these steps:
- register your details here
- click here to login to make an active check
- search for your labour provider using their unique reference number (URN)
- confirm the details and check the person you have been dealing with is named on the licence.

What happens next?
If your active check is successful a message to confirm this will appear. If the check is not successful it could mean that the labour provider is not licensed and you will need to contact us to verify this. If the active check is unsuccessful or you cannot find the labour provider’s details, please do not assume they are unlicensed. There may have been a problem registering the check.
Stay one step ahead
Making an active check on a labour provider will mean you have a record to show you have taken reasonable steps to use a licensed labour provider. It is a criminal offence to use a labour provider who does not have GLAA licence.
The ‘Reasonable steps’ guidance booklet has more information on how you can check your labour provider is licensed. Following the steps in the booklet and conducting an active check will protect you against prosecution should your labour provider be operating without a licence.
