The Board is piloting an audit programme

What you need to know about our pilot auditing programme.

Auditing is a function of the EWRB, so this year we are undertaking a pilot audit programme. The programme will work to verify that licensed electrical workers are carrying out their work in a compliant, safe and competent manner.

Telarc has been selected to manage the audit programme which is currently being undertaken in the Auckland, Hamilton, Waikato and Coromandel regions. Approximately 300 electricians have been randomly selected to participate in this programme. A detailed letter explaining the audit was sent to the selected electricians recently.

The pilot is due to be completed by 31 May 2017 and the results of the audits will be analysed and communicated with all electrical workers.

Further information can be found in the EWRB’s auditing consultation paper [PDF, 323 KB]  NEEDS ADDING LINK

If you are a licensed electrical worker and have further questions, you can contact the Board on 0800 66 1000.
