The Construction Personnel Green Card’s absence does not hinder the construction personnel from entering and carrying out works at the construction site since construction personnel registration has been made. The QR code on the temporary pass may be used as evidence for authentication of the construction personnel’s details.

The E-Handover system is a platform that verifies the receipt of the card by the personnel/employer which replaces the physical handover of the cards over the CIDB state/branch counters. The system is a front-liner that informs employers/personnel on the status of the postal delivery of the card via the information notification tracking number. E-Handover began operations on 1/2/2020 in line with the voluntary closure of over counter deliveries at CIDB State/Branch offices.

Refer to the manual below for further information:

Employer/staff can submit complaints to CIDB e-Assistance with the attachment of an official letter relating to the denial of construction site entry by disclosing project details, contractor and clients involved so CIDB can take further action.

If your skills/academic certificate details are not in the CIMS system’s list, please check for certificates recognition at the Malaysian Qualifying Agency (MQA). If available, elaborate further detailing proof of confirmation for the certificates to CIDB via the e-Assistance system. This allows for CIDB to update the certificate information in the CIMS system. Applicants are advised to postpone their application for the Construction Personnel Card (Green Card)until their certificates information is updated.
