Transfer of Card Scheme Data
Posted 16 December 2019
On the first December NOCN successfully transferred all the data concerning individuals with CPCS and CISRS cards from CITB to the NOCN Job Cards subsidiary.
It is important to notify all card holders that the data owners and data processors have therefore changed.
For CPCS NOCN Job Cards is now the Data Owner and processor. We will only use the data that has been transferred to us for the reason it was collected, the issuing and management of Competency Cards. As part of this process the data will also be processed by two UK based IT provider who supply the management systems and a UK based printer who prints and post the cards. We have also retained PearsonVue who will continue to deliver the CPCS renewal test as they did for CITB. They also provide the Health, Safety and Environment test on behalf of CITB. We felt it was therefore less change if we retained this provider. For data legislation reasons, however, it has been necessary to have a separate system for CPCS Renewal test from HSE tests requiring different log ins etc. it was also necessary to cancel any booked Renewal tests and rebook them due to data legislation. PearsonVue have an off shore call centre, which was all that was available to us, who are managing the rebooking of these cancelled tests and will also manage any new test bookings. There is an online test booking system if individuals do not want to deal with an off shore call centre.
The CISRS card scheme is owned by CISRS and they remain the Data Controller, but now NOCN Job Cards is the data processer along with the other 3rd party providers listed above.
All personal data for individuals with CISRS and CPCS cards was transferred from CITB to NOCN in a GDPR compliant manner and all data is stored on compliant data storage devices.
Our Privacy notice where everything is covered can be found here - https://www.nocnjobcards.org/privacy/ . We have data compliant agreements with CITB to gain the HSE results to assist with Card issuing and we will share data with CITB for Grant claiming purposes and for them to update the Industry Training Register. ‘
