Delays to card printing

If you are contacting us regarding having not received your CPCS or CISRS card, please be assured that NOCN staff, external teams and a new supplier have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to resume card production. Printing resumed on 14th September and we are working through the backlog of cards.

We apologise for any inconvenience. In the meantime, you, your employer or a site manager can visit the NOCN card checker at to validate your card details.


Blue CPCS Competence Cards – More than 10 Categories Card Tap

In cases where individuals hold more than 10 categories, the new card will display nine printed categories on the reverse side, with the 10th row stating: "To See Additional Categories, Tap Card."

Further information on this can be found in the bulletins section of our website.

Scheme Administration

NOCN Job Cards are responsible for providing scheme administration services to CISRS, following CITB withdrawing from this role as part of its Vision 2020 programme.

All CISRS operators who apply for a card from 2nd December will receive a new digital ‘Smart’ card. The Smart cards work through NFC (Near Field Communication) technology and by tapping the Smart card on any NFC enabled device – most modern mobile phones and tablets – the cardholder’s name, photo, courses and endorsements will appear.

A CISRS NFC Technology User Guide will be made available in the next few days and will be downloadable from the CISRS website. NOCN Job Cards are currently working on the next stage of Smart cards to allow for additional features to be introduced such as card renewal notifications. This change will not affect most card applicants as the vast majority of CISRS cards are now applied.

The cost of the new CISRS card will be £33 (vat exempt), whilst this a small increase on the current card cost, it will still be lower than the industry average.
