Established in 1992, NPORS or National Plant Operators Registration Scheme is one of the UK’s leading accreditation and registration bodies.
The organisation works across the construction, industrial, utilities, warehousing and distribution, agricultural, ports and marine sectors.
Since it was founded it has worked hard to ensure that appropriate training and assessments are being delivered to employers.
(In 2014, NPORS became a UKCG ‘accepted record scheme’, meaning that it is recogned as being equivalent to CPCS – Construction Plant Competence Scheme. NPORS cards carry the CSCS logo in the same way that CPCS cards do.
This was done as part of a drive to bring all card schemes under a ‘one logo’ policy, making employers able to easily recognise valid schemes and cards. NPORS has become so common that most major build companies will accept the card as an alternative to CPCS.)
There are no government issued licences for vehicles at work.
The law requires that each operator is given adequate training by their employer so that they become competent to operate the machinery which they use (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998; regulation 9).
NPORS is one of the four founder members of the Accrediting Bodies Association for Workplace Transport which was officially approved by HSE Board in January 2013.
The NPORS operator registration card is produced for an individual who has successfully completed practical and knowledge assessments on the categories show on the back of the card. This card shows that they have achieves a level of competence to operate the item on the card.
