New SIA Licence Design


The SIA are updating the SIA licence card as part of the improvements they are making to their licensing systems and processes. In response to feedback from the industry and partners, the size of the picture of the licence holder has been increased to almost twice the size of the old one. The silver hologram has been replaced with a holographic overlay (similar to a driving licence) which is visible when tilted at the right angle. This is far harder to copy and also protects the picture. The chip has been removed and this has been replaced by a barcode and QR code which will take you to useful pieces of information such as the licence terms and conditions. There are additional overt and covert security features on the back and front including UV, micro text and engraving.

It is important, as a SIA Licence Holder, for all of our employees, partners and clients to know that the new licence card will be released into circulation towards the end of the year to new applicants and those renewing their licence.
