Care regulation started in Wales on 1 March 2004.
From that date, new domiciliary care agencies are prohibited from operating unless and until they are registered with the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales. This requirement applies to services providing personal care to people in their own homes in Wales.
Leaflets on registration are available from cssiw.org.uk.
