I'm no expert, the certification is something half remembered that I read somewhere
Have a look at the information online.

.

Is this a club thing or something as until a few years ago i was doing 2 or 3 tented events a year and never had a certificate, did have liability insurance but thats it.

When I first saw this I was in general agreement with Mogwyth, but after some thought it soon becomes clear there is a lot that needs to be properly considered before attempting to arrange a meet. I don't think there is general certificate for this as such, but certainly there is quite a lot to be considered and put in place before any meet can take place.

There shouldn't be to much of a problem on a recognised caravan site, but if its on a green field site you would need to ensure the essential infrastructure is set up. It may require seeking permision from the local authority for temporary change of use.

You may find this link to the Caravan and Camping Club of some use:

A Certificate of Exemption is needed from, Natural England, The Welsh Assembly Government (Planning Division) or The Scottish Government (Housing Markets Supply Division)

Over 200 clubs run by elected volunteers belong to ACCEO. The ACCEO website tells you pretty much all you need to know.

Thank you Martin for the heads up.

This is the website
www.gov.uk/guidance/camping-and-caravann...les-and-how-to-apply.

I think it's only fair to say that this is just the start, and you would need to consult the full rules which will begin to dictate the other essential provisions you would need organise and run a meet.

I thought that there was a requirement for recognised certification for rally organisers.

Hello Parksy, I think the certification is for the group rather than the individual. I can't remember exactly but I don't think I had to have certification as an individual.

Thanks Martin.
My point is that if an individual hoped to organise caravan rallies that individual would need to check the legal requirements and to ensure that the necessary certification was in place beforehand.

Caught up with you Parksy, Absolutely correct, an individual would have a lot of work to do including getting an exemption certificate and of course relevant insurances.
