A CSCS Card is a mandatory obligation for anyone who is working in the construction industry and important for labourers to obtain who want access to a construction site.

Recently, the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) sent out a reminder to the industry to be prepared for the withdrawal of the Construction Related Occupation (CRO) card.

CSCS will stop issuing CRO cards from 31st March 2017 and all CRO cards issued since October 2015 will expire on 30th September 2017.

The removal of the CRO card will impact over 230,000 CRO card holders and the alternatives available will depend on the qualifications held by the applicant and whether their occupation is categorised as construction related.

If you are a CRO cardholder visits www.cscs.uk.com/cro to find out what steps you need to take.
