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.

CPCS Tester Card

To become a CPCS tester you must have suitable and sufficient industry and operating knowledge and ability on the category of plant in all its acceptable uses and environments.

A CPCS Tester card confirms the holder has demonstrated suitable experience within the industry, has plant-related health and safety knowledge, first aid knowledge, health and safety awareness, advanced underpinning knowledge and operating ability, and role-based ability as a Tester.

A Tester card consists of two designs:

  • Provisional card - role-based competence qualification has yet to be achieved and is valid for two years and is non-renewable.
  • Full card role-based competence qualification has been achieved and are valid for five years and are renewable
