End of Industry Accreditation

26 July 2023

There is now less than a year until 30 June 2024 when cards carrying the CSCS logo obtained via Industry Accreditation will no longer be renewed and all such cards will expire on 31 December 2024. With the latest Build UK People Survey revealing that only half of members have a plan in place to transition their workforce onto an appropriate card before the deadline, there are a number of things you should be doing now:

  • Identify which of your workers hold Industry Accreditation cards
  • Confirm the appropriate route for each worker to replace their card and set out a plan to move them onto the right card by the deadline
  • Where required, find an S/NVQ provider and register workers for the appropriate qualification.

CSCS has issued guidance on the different ways that individuals holding Blue, Gold or Black Industry Accreditation cards issued by the core scheme can move onto an appropriate card. It is also hosting a free webinar on Monday 7 August from 11:00am to 11:45am to highlight the support available and employers will need to sign up to attend.
