EUSR Cards Go Digital

In a positive step towards reducing plastic use and improving ease of accessibility for individuals, the Energy & Utility Skills Register (EUSR) announced that beginning February 2022 virtual cards will be replacing the current physical cards. This will affect a number of our training customers including those completing Mast & Tower Safety (MATS) courses.

When does it come into force?

From February 2022 all new EUSR registrations will have a virtual card as standard. Virtual cards will be extended to all other ‘live’ EUSR registrations later in 2022 so everyone is encouraged to provide a valid work or personal mobile phone number

What does it mean for the candidate?

Candidates will be able to access their virtual card via an app on their mobile device or tablet when asked to produce their EUSR card.  

“To access their virtual card, a newly registered individual will be sent a text with a link to download an app on their mobile phone (either Android or Apple). The app will contain their virtual EUSR card, including details of all active registrations.” EUSR website

Can I still use a plastic card?

Yes. Some employers may wish to pay £2 for an additional plastic card from EUSR and you will still be able to use your existing plastic card. 

More information is available from the EUSR Website
