Advice given

After reviewing the dDCO, the only thing that can be seen relating to WFD is that the applicant has listed the WFD assessment in the documents to be certified. This is not something we see as a common practice and it is hard to comment without reviewing the document but on the face on it, there is no issue in doing this. As with all documents listed in the certification requirement, it adds security, which is a good thing.
