Electrical Works in your Home
You should always use a Registered Electrical Contractor (REC) to carry out electrical work in your home. It is the law.
The Safe Electric scheme covers all Registered Electrical Contractors (RECs) working in Ireland. The CRU regulates all Registered Electrical Contractors through the scheme.
The Safe Electric scheme ensures that Registered Electrical Contractors:
- operate to national standards and technical rules
- have the technical capability to carry out the work
- are insured

When a Registered Electrical Contractor carries out work in your home, they must give you a Completion Certificate. This shows that their work is safe and up to standard. You should always ask for a completion certificate for all electrical works completed in your home.
