NULCA has accepted a position of involvement with the Board of Dial Before You Dig Certification Ltd (DCL), who offers certification for locators working with Dial Before You Dig (DBYD) asset owners and contractors.
DCL locators have a high level of understanding and practical expertise.
NULCA said some members may have already received their notifications that their renewal is due.
The association has received many calls regarding the costs and processes involved as part of the certification renewal, which is why it has accepted the position on 10 November.
NULCA said the opportunity would provide the organisation and its locator members a voice to the recertification and ongoing development programs.
NULCA has not had any previous consultation with DCL in regards to renewal costs; however, it does endorse the advancement of the locating industry through a professional development program.
