Some individuals in the future will have difficulty renewing or updating their CPCS cards due to issues caused by COVID-19. Difficulties in renewing may take the form of not being able to make HSE tests or CPCS renewal tests as Pearson VUE and many Internet Test Centers are closed.

Industry has welcomed advice on the relaxation by Sites on cards that have expired, however, some Employers require a more controlled and longer-term solution to this issue.

Due to this and after strong industry direction CPCS is providing the ability to apply for an Emergency CPCS Card which would be valid for 12 months for those unable to renew cards or upgrade cards due to not being able to renew their HSE test or Renewal Test.
