According to the data held by the Ministry of Justice, since April 2014, 337 individuals have had their certificate to act as a certificated enforcement agent cancelled by the county court. Reasons for cancelling a certificate include an agent leaving his or her employer, ceasing to work as an enforcement agent or by a judicial order following a judgement that they are not a fit and proper person to hold a certificate.

Since 2014, no High Court Enforcement Officers have had their licence revoked as a result of a complaint.
