Why choose NPORS ?

Established in 1992, the National Plant Operators Registration Scheme is now one of the UK’S leading Accreditation bodies, working across the Construction, Industrial, Utilities, Warehousing and Distribution, Agriculture, Ports and Marine sectors.  NPORS accreditation offers flexibility, whilst maintaining standards both nationally and internationally and is now recognised by the UKCG (United Kingdom construction Group)

During an interview with The Construction Index – UKCG head of safety, health & environment David Lambert said that the major contractors wanted to “ensure there are no unreasonable barriers” when it comes to plant operator certification. He said that having two separate approved card schemes, (NPORS and CPCS) in competition with each other, would promote efficiency and make life easier for site managers.
