Please note: that any applications made over the phone must be made by the applicant, a friend/family member or their employer only. Other third parties are not permitted to apply for a CSCS card over the phone. If we become aware of such practices then we may take steps to prevent/block such communications and refer them to the appropriate authorities for further action. Individuals applying for a CSCS card on behalf of someone else must ensure that the applicant is present when calling us so they can provide consent.  If a third party wishes to apply for CSCS cards they can register to apply online for cards.

Most cards arrive at their requested destination within 10 working days of application. If your card has not been delivered to your requested destination within four weeks of your application, please contact CSCS. After 90 days your application will be considered closed and a further payment of £36 will be required to process a replacement card.

CSCS require an email address, mobile number and home address for all card holders. CSCS Card Holders must advise the CSCS Contact Centre if they change their email address, mobile number, if they move house or change occupation. Expiry Notifications are sent to the card holders email address 6 months before the expiry date printed on their card.  Where we do not hold an email address this will be sent to the card holders last know home address.

The CSCS Card remains the exclusive property of Construction Skills Certification Scheme Ltd.  Cards are issued to and must be kept in the named cardholder’s secure possession at all times.  CSCS Limited reserves the right to unilaterally withdraw a card.  To see the CSCS Privacy Policy please visit the CSCS website https://www.cscs.uk.com/privacy
