When you become accredited with DASH you will qualify to carry the ‘Nottingham Standard’ or DASH accreditation.

The Nottingham Standard is a local scheme in the city which may attracts certain benefits and discounting. it is worth noting that Nottingham City Council have informed us that landlords, who have properties which should have been licensed at the beginning of the Selective Licensing scheme (1st August 2018), should have applied for accreditation before this date and obtained accreditation within a reasonable period of time, to benefit from the reduced licensing fee.
