I don't think that there is anything objectively wrong with the Certificate of Competence. The CPD system was widely criticized, but we are all now used to the tick box approach it mandates, so it has become acceptable. But it was never perfect. What troubles me about the Certificate is the role of the poor old COLP (in my case, me) who may be expected to ensure some level of truth or honesty in the certificates of the solicitors in his or her firm. Confirmation that all COLPs have to do is check colleagues have signed the blessed thing would be welcome!
