CP cards for WSH professionals and Competent Persons

Competent Persons will get the new CP Card that is developed to raise the professionalism of MOM-registered Competent Persons and enhance the card's security and durability.

Since 5 November 2015, MOM have been issuing new certificate cards for Competent Persons (CPs) such as Workplace Safety and Health Officers (WSHOs), Designated Workplace Doctors and Authorised Examiners.

The new certificate card (CP Card) will replace the current laminated paper certificate, and will be issued in phases.

The current laminated paper certificate card will be phased out by 31 December 2017.

Improved features

The new CP card had been updated in its design and security features against potential forgery. It is made of PVC material for better durability and quality.

Its credit card size at 86mm by 54mm also makes it easy to be kept in wallets.
