Smartcard Audit: 2019

Build UK has published the results of this year’s SmartCard Audit which saw over 49,000 cards audited across 745 sites. Just over half of cards were read using smart technology and the report sets out some of the challenges facing the industry, including the number of card schemes enabled with smart technology and the range of technology used.

In 2015, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) set a requirement for all card schemes carrying the CSCS logo to introduce smart technology by 2020. Smart technology allows companies to quickly and easily identify that an individual has achieved the agreed standard of training and qualifications in their occupation.

This year’s annual Build UK and CECA SmartCard Audit took place on 25 September 2019. You can read the full report here.
