Regulation of Electrical Contractors with respect to Safety

The CER has today, 18th December 2014, published a  Decision Paper on the Regulation of Electrical Contractors with respect to Safety from 2016. 
The Energy (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2006 confers on the CER the power to regulate electrical contractors with respect to safety. It further grants the CER authority to designate one or more Bodies to carry out this function on a day-to-day basis.  In 2009, the CER designated the Electrical Contractors Safety and Standards Association of Ireland (ECSSAI) and the Register of Electrical Contractors of Ireland (RECI) as the Bodies to regulate electrical contractors on a day-to-day basis for a period of seven years. As that term is due to expire at the end of 2015, the CER published a Consultation Paper in June with the purpose of reviewing the scheme to coincide with the end of this seven year term. This Consultation Paper posed various questions relating to the scheme as it currently stands in order to seek views on how it may be improved in the future. Following on from this, a Proposed Decision Paper was  published in October and outlined the CER’s Proposed Decision as to how the CER intends to operate the scheme from January 2016. A Response to Comments Paper was also published alongside that paper. This Decision Paper, published today, outlines the CER’s final decision and concludes this public consultation. 
Queries on the Decision Paper should be sent to Thomas Quinn, available at tquinn@cer.ie.
