Upgrade/Downgrade Your Category


Have you been wondering if you’re forever bound to the category you were initially awarded?

The answer is no.

An upgrade application can be sought by a contractor who in their estimation is qualified for a higher category in a given class of works.

The contractor should be able to show verifiable signs of growth in, but not limited to the following areas;

  • a)An increase in professional experience in the industry,
  • b) An increase in equipment and assets owned by the firm,
  • c) Positive financials-increased turnover and cash at hand.

Contractors should note the following:

  • d) An upgrade application can only be sought after a renewal application has been successfully submitted and a valid practicing license      awarded in that financial year.
  • e) That the final approval decision for the upgrade awardment solely rests with the Authority.

A contractor with good reason can also request to downgrade the category in which they currently operate in.
