Seems you are now required to get your photo verified when applying for or renewing a card.
Supposed to be a form you can download to get it filled in by someone.

Section 2 Identification Photograph
All applicants must complete this section and supply a new photograph.

(Unless you had your photograph taken when you sat your ECS H&S Assessment you will need to provide a photograph.)
This can be done electronically when making an on-line application.
Your photograph should meet the same requirements as for a passport photograph.
(A colour standard passport photo taken against a plain background with you facing forward and looking straight at the camera. The picture should be framed as a close-up of your head and shoulders, be clear and in sharp focus, with a clear difference between your face and the background. The picture should show you with a neutral expression and your mouth closed and your eyes open and clearly visible, show your full head and be of you on your own.)
If you are providing a photograph then this section should be completed by the person endorsing your photograph. The same person should also sign and date the reverse of the photograph. Your photograph should be endorsed by one of the following:
A Unite the Union official;
An authorised representative of a company you have been employed by in the last 3 years; An officer of your local JobCentre Plus
A community representative e.g. MP, Solicitor or Judge

Your application will be delayed if you do not provide a valid photograph

The photo thing seemed to be circumvented when I got my card renewed in late March. The online process required me to upload a photo so it could let me progress, but when I went for my H&S test they took a photo of me there and that's the one that appeared on my card.
As you have to show ID when you take the test I suppose the photo is verified by the test centre. It got sent off electronically with my test result.

All they have to do with mine, is look at the old photo.
I sent them the same one.


I got mine renewed in may and had to get the photo verified.
