The application form is exactly as it says, "your application for registration" and this is just the beginning of the process.

Your application may well be rejected if you do not meet the requirements, or delayed if the CQC feels they need further information. The application requires you to make a declaration that you are fully compliant at the time of this application, and NOT that you will be compliant at the time of the registration visit or interview.

If you fail to meet all the requirements, you will have to support this with a detailed action plan of how and when you expect to be fully compliant.
It is clearly easier to just get compliant in the first place.

What this means is that there is a fair amount of work you have to do to get your affairs in order BEFORE you make the application.
