Every member of a drilling crew should hold their own valid BDA Audit Card. A Yellow Card holder may offer drilling support to any BDA Audited Lead Driller. A Blue Card holder may only carry out drilling activities using the techniques specified on the individuals BDA Audit Card.

BDA Audited Driller Cards should be reviewed along with the individuals Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Land Drilling Card.

The BDA Audit is the subject of continued improvement and update and fully satisfies new British Standards (BS 22475-2 and 3), European Standards (EuroCode) and the Construction Design and Management Regulations (CDM) with regard to the need to prove the on-going annual competency of drilling operatives.
