If you already hold a valid IPAF PAL Card, you can upgrade to the new IPAF Smart PAL Card.
The IPAF Smart PAL Card and reader system can be used to verify if pre-use checks have been done.
Access to machines can be restricted - the MEWP can be set to only start if operators have a valid Smart PAL Card which proves they are trained for the appropriate machine category.
Smartcard systems can be integrated for industry-wide coverage.
Personal contact details are not contained within the card. The data on the card is limited to your name, operator number and categories trained.
IPAF and HSS Training will keep any personal data secure in line with data protection legislation.
The Online Verification Tool contained in the Notes Tab above can be used to validate card holder details that you need to order your replacement IPAF Smart PALCard.
NOTE - Only cards issued by HSS Training can be upgraded to the Smart PAL card. Replacement cards can also be ordered here. If unsure, call 0845 766 7799.
To identify if an IPAF PAL Card is Smart or standard, look for the smart card logo on the front of the card.

The replacement IPAF Smart PAL Card will be despatched within 72 hours of receipt of order.
The new IPAF Smart PAL Card will retain the expiry date of your original card.
The IPAF Smart PAL Card will continue to have security features, such as the cardholder's photo, signature and an IPAF Holographic logo.
An electronic logbook can be created for individual operators - showing which machines they have operated, for how long and where - and what familiarisations they have received.
Site and safety managers can use the PAL Card online verification tool to check if a card is genuine. A valid PAL Card is proof that the cardholder has been trained to operate powered access equipment safely and effectively.
Before using the tool, check that the PAL Card presented to you appears valid.
To use the verification tool, enter the licence number as shown on the card, e.g. "OP/1234567".
The PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) is recognised worldwide across industries as proof of platform operator training to the highest standard. PAL Card operator training is certified by TÜV as conforming to ISO 18878.
If in doubt, call HSS Training on 0845 766 7799.
