Some 60,000 Industry Accreditation cards, also known as Grandfather Rights cards, allowed workers, supervisors and managers to obtain Blue, Gold and Black CSCS cards on the strength of an employers’ recommendation rather than the achievement of a recognised qualification.
CSCS closed Industry Accreditation to new applicants in 2010.
From 1st January 2020, all cards renewed under Industry Accreditation will expire on 31st December 2024 and CSCS will stop issuing the card from 30thJune 2024.
The withdrawal of Industry Accreditation will be the final step towards achieving the CLC’s requirement of ensuring nationally recognised qualifications are in place for all occupations.
