CSCS announce price rise for cards
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) will be increasing the cost of a card to £36 (inclusive of VAT) with effect from 1 September 2018. This increase applies to all cards administered directly by CSCS.
Discussing the price rise, Graham Wren, CSCS Chief Executive said: “We have managed to maintain the current card price for the last eight years however inflationary pressure, together with increased costs associated with combatting fraudulent activity, have pushed our costs up to the point where the current price is not sustainable. In addition, with our current contact centre provider CITB having served notice to exit the service contract the CSCS Board have agreed to invest in new technology and systems to ensure the application process is modernised.”
