Can CSCS smartcards be read offline?
Yes, CSCS cards can be read offline.
The card reader software or mobile device app will automatically choose either online or offline mode depending on whether you are connected to the Internet.

In online mode the data on the card is first checked against the CSCS database to make sure it is completely up to date before being displayed on screen.
