My CSCS App Support

The My CSCS App

You can use the app to manage your personal details, link your CSCS card to your account and access your virtual CSCS card.

You can download the app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

CSCS has also introduced virtual cards. Virtual cards are digital equivalents of a physical CSCS card, which can be stored on a smartphone by using the CSCS app.

A virtual card holds the same data as a physical CSCS card, and can be checked visually or by using the CSCS Go Smart app.
