Deploying CSCS Smart Check

Users will be able to download CSCS Smart Check from the Apple and Google App stores as of Friday April 1st 2022. It is recommended that users download over Wi-Fi prior to attending site to avoid any network related issues i.e., lack of strong internet connection, no site Wi-Fi etc.

Users will then be able to scan the cards of all users attending site, except for the following schemes who will be going live on the app later in April.


For these schemes, users should proceed with the usual method of validation, up until Phase 2 release of the Application later in the month.

Please also note the following schemes may be slightly delayed and will likely go live shortly after the launch date of April 1st: Allianz, ADIA, CSR, HSB EIL, SNIJIB

CSCS Smart Check Help and Support If cards cannot be found using Smart Check, it is recommended that users go to the Help and Support webpage to determine the appropriate next steps.
