All JIB-PMES UK-PHMES CSCS registration cards issued since 2017 have been Smartcards. The cards are classed as ‘Smart’ because they contain a chip (similar to the chip on a bankcard) which contains all relevant cardholder information (name, address, date of birth, qualifications etc.) and can be read electronically by a card reader.
JIB-PMES CSCS registration Smartcards operate using the ‘Go Smart’ system. This means that JIB-PMES Smartcards can be read electronically by any person or at any location that has a link to the ‘Go Smart’ system. The ‘Go Smart’ app is available as a desktop application (for installation on a PC or laptop, along with a card reader) or as a smartphone app for either Apple iphones or for smartphones which use ‘Android’ technology.
The following link will allow you to download the different ‘Go Smart’ apps as required:
