    Nope but ongoing operation going on in Central Scotland with Police, Trading Standards and I think DWP. They have targeted all trades but a number of window cleaners are being reported to Prosecutor Fiscal for not having a window cleaning licence. On top of this if caught whilst claiming benefits charges will be higher.

    I did hear of HSE cautioning a few window cleaners in Fife.

    Only for Scotland, we have to be Police checked before trading.
