4. Once we receive your application for registration we will:

  • verify the details that you have provided and confirm registration;
  • send confirmation of your SLfT registration number by post to your Registered Address. This is confirmation from us that you have successfully registered for SLfT. It is important that you check that these details are correct when you receive the confirmation – if there are any inaccuracies you need to notify us (see SLfT4008);
  • if you stated that you have a Controller on any of these sites, the Controller will receive a letter from us asking them to confirm their status at the individual site. They will need to sign and return this declaration to us;
  • for group registrations, we will send group members a letter requesting confirmation that they are part of the group for this registration. They will need to sign and return this declaration to us.
