Applying for a JIB PHMES CSCS card

When you have decided which card is appropriate for your needs and have the correct application form, please complete all required information and return it to the address on the front of the form or email it to [email protected]

You can either pay for your card by completing the credit/debit card details on your form or alternatively you can enclose a cheque or postal order if returning it by post (if you use an A4 envelope please ensure you put the correct postage on).

Current turnaround time for cards is 2 to 3 weeks from receipt of all documentation. If you wish to Fast track your application please tick the box on the front of the form. This service takes approximately 4 working days for an additional fee of £55. Total £90.00 including the cost of the card.

  • POSTAGE – If you have ordered a card from JIB-PHMES and have not received it in the post,  please allow 1 calendar month before ordering a replacement.  This allows any cards which may still be in the Royal Mail system to be returned to us as undelivered.  This does not apply to cards processed by the fast track method.

For assistance with any of the above please call the Telephone 01480 476925 or email [email protected]

Please be advised that the four working day Fast Track guidelines will be affected by any bank holidays or business close downs i.e. Christmas, Easter etc,.
