Home Building Skills Partnership

Home Builders Visitor Card

In June 2018, the Construction Skills Certification Scheme announced that they would be withdrawing the Construction Site Visitor card.

After months of hard work, the Home Building Skills Partnership, with help from Reference Point and CIGA launched a new replacement card, the Home Builders Visitor Card, in December 2019. 

This change will affect a large number of staff involved in the home building industry, so please make sure to check out the website at www.homebuildskillscard.co.uk

All Construction Site Visitor Cards issued from 3 September 2018 by CSCS will expire on 31 August 2020 and are non-renewable. CSCS will stop issuing the card from 28 February 2020.

CSCS cards are still available until 28 February 2020 but we advise that you renew with a Home Builders Visitor card. If you are going to be working on site we advise that you don’t allow a gap between your cards and renew now via the website. The new card will store information on it such as your CITB H,S & E test pass, so as long as you have passed this within the last two years before applying then that’s fine.

The Home Builders Visitor Card is the first in a series of cards due to be launched by the Skills Partnership which promotes operational competence across the industry.

However, all of this information and more, is now available on the dedicated website www.homebuildskillscard.co.uk
