With the last Build UK SmartCard Audit revealing that only 53% of cards were checked using Smart Technology, Build UK and CSCS have published guidance on ‘How to be a Smart Site’ together with a handy poster to help companies realise the benefits.

This covers how to check cards using Smart Technology, identifying and verifying those that are not yet smart, and what to do in the event of a fraudulent card.

The guidance follows the update to the CLC Industry Card Schemes Recommendation in 2020 to include a requirement that all cards displaying the CSCS logo must use Smart Technology by 31 March 2022, in order to provide the industry with a consistent means of recognising that individuals working on construction sites have the required qualifications and training for their occupation.
