Take Action to Retain Your Industry Accreditation Card, urges CLC

THE CONSTRUCTION Leadership Council (CLC) is encouraging all Industry Accreditation (IA) cardholders to take action to retain their card.

The CLC recommendation introduced in 2015 and updated in 2017 & 2020 set an expectation of all CSCS cards being achieved via qualification by the end of 2024.

The different ways in which those individuals who hold a blue, gold or black industry accreditation card (issued by CSCS, via industry accreditation) can move to an appropriate card has been set out by CSCS. This may be by:

Recognising a qualification they already have
Assessing their competence against the relevant qualification for their occupation
Undertaking any additional training required
For a minority, it may require more extensive training

In a new statement, the CLC says: “As an industry, and in accordance with various sets of legislation including the Construction Design and Management Regulations (CDM) and the Building Safety Act, we must demonstrate to the regulator, our clients, building occupiers and the wider public that those designing, building and maintaining the built environment are competent to do so.”

Retain Your IA Card

All Industry Accreditation cards issued from 1st Jan 2020 will expire on 31st Dec 2024 and cannot be renewed. Members of the CSCS Alliance will be issuing guidance relevant to their individual card scheme. Whilst all Industry Accreditation cardholders are required to take action to retain their card from January 2025, the CLC says it should not be overly difficult for those able to demonstrate their competence and there may be grants available for employers.

Further guidance for IA cardholders is available here.
