To complete your application you will need the ECS HS&E assessment. However, if the health and safety qualification you hold is accepted as a 3-year exemption from the ECS HS&E Assessment you will not need to sit the ECS Assessment separately when you apply.

Existing Cardholders:

Your existing card is still valid until its expiry date.
If your renewal date is before July 2021 then you will have a choice whether to renew your card or move over to the new card requirements above. We recommend that you move to the new card requirements as soon as possible. All existing cardholders will need to meet new requirements when their card is renewed after July 2021.
Once you have met the new requirements the normal renewal cycle will be in place when your card reaches its expiry date.
