Does a Rail Industry Worker card expire?
Rail Industry Worker (RIW) cards have a lifespan of 5 years. The RIW cards are smartcard enabled, which means they house a chip which holds information to allow the card to be read offline with certain devices. To ensure the integrity of the chip, the card must be replaced every 5 years.
The RIW System will alert Employer Administrators when a card is expiring, as the cost to renew the subscription that year will be different. The 5 year renewal fee will incorporate the annual cardholder subscription plus the issue of the new card fee.
