    To record a PIP assessment you must get permission for the health assessment providers at least 48 hours before the assessment. You must use the appropriate recording devices, either a CD or tape recorder and you must produce to identical copies, one must be handed in at the end of the assessment. Phones, laptops etc can't be used. If you record the assessment without permission and they catch you doing this then your assessment will be stopped, your file returned to DWP and you'll very likely be refused PIP.

    You can certainly ask them if they are registered but they can refuse to tell you.

      They are known to tell a lot of lies yes but they do also tell the truth. Recording a PIP assessment is good if you can afford to buy 2 CD/tape recorders because you need to record 2 identical copies. Not everyone can afford this especially when it will only be used for the face 2 face assessment and will be fairly useless afterwards.
