Cardholder FAQs

Medical Industry Accredited (MIA) is a credentialing service for healthcare settings and industry representatives.  It allows representatives to demonstrate they are professionally competent and appropriately qualified to interact within healthcare settings. In addition, healthcare providers can be in control of who is on-site and that individuals have the relevant credentials for their visit. 

MIA Members hold an ID card which allows them to register site visits in advance with healthcare providers who are using the MIA service.

Contact your GP surgery to request a copy of your immunisation record and upload this to your LSI application form. 

If you are unable to locate your GP records, you can upload a serology report proving your immunity.

After a full course of three vaccinations to protect against Hepatitis B, immunity is normally lifelong. However, five-year boosters are recommended for anyone thought to be at continuing risk of infection such as healthcare workers.

Once you have completed and submitted your application form (for a new/renewed ID card), it will be processed within 3 working days of receipt. 

Please ensure you submit your application in plenty of time before you need to register a visit as applications cannot be processed on demand (since the appropriate checks need to be completed).

Once you have been approved, you will be notified via email and an ID card will generate automatically.  A digital version will be available for you to download. 

Hard copy ID cards are usually posted to your company’s Head Office and can take up to 10 working days to arrive. If you have still not received your ID card after 10 working days, please check first with your Head Office before contacting for further assistance.
