Construction Workforce Registration  System(CWRS)
The Construction Workforce Registration System (CWRS) is an online portal for CoreTrade and Multi-skilling registration and the renewal of Direct R1 eligibility.

Construction personnel who are eligible for registration include locals as well as suitable longer-staying and experienced or qualified foreign workers.

Foreign construction work permit holders registered in any of these schemes are considered higher-skilled workers under the tier-levy scheme with extended period of employment.
   
Adjustment to CoreTrade Renewal
With the Covid-19 travel restrictions, adjustment has been made to provide sufficient time for workers to enrol and attend their required CET for renewal. With effect from 4 Apr 2020, the Provisional Registration (PR) for renewal shall be extended to 6 months (from current 3 months) upon the approval of the renewal. The PR expiry for those who applied for renewal between 1 Jan 2020 to 3 Apr 2020 shall be extended to 31 Jul 2020. The registered workers shall remain as skilled worker during this period.
(Above is only applicable to those who had not exceeded the 24-month grace period for renewal).

The R1 status of workers who submitted their renewal between 1 Jan 2020 to 31 Mar 2020 shall be extended to 31 Jul 2020. Those who applied for renewal from 1 Apr 2020 shall be extended by 6 months




Adjustment to AN for CoreTrade Application
With the Covid-19 travel restrictions, adjustment has been made to extend the expiry of the Acknowledgment Notice (AN) to 9 months (from current 6 months). This will allow sufficient time for workers to enrol and attend the required Skills Assessment (SA) for registration.
(The above shall take effect for new application that is approved on or after 4 Apr 2020)
