Electron Issue 95
Keeping you up to date with the latest regulatory changes, exam reports, technical issues, consultation results and other issues affecting electrical workers - published March 2019.
Presiding Member's update
This Electron contains key information about the upcoming 2019 licensing renewal round and the transition to a licence renewal schedule based on the date electrical workers were first registered. Please read the information in this Electron carefully and make sure that you are ready for relicensing.
Relicensing on time is important. If an electrical worker does not complete the relicensing process by 30 June 2019 then they are no longer authorised to carry out or supervise prescribed electrical work. To ensure this does not happen, make sure you have completed your competency programme and that your contact details on the Register are up to date so that you receive licence renewal correspondence.
Given the changes that are taking place, the Board has decided that this Electron will focus on relicensing matters. The next Electron will return to providing topical information.
