Regulation 17: Re-accreditation
Subject to regulation 8.2 above, if you are accredited to conduct criminal advocacy, then you must apply for re-accreditation at your current level in the manner prescribed by the SRA within five years of the date you were first accredited or your most recent re-accreditation at that level.
If you fail to apply for re-accreditation within the period required by the SRA and have not been granted an extension of the period under regulation 18, your accreditation at your current level will lapse.
