hi,m
Have been reading in some other posts and the Electrical Safety Act 2002 that Electrical Engineers are able to carry out household electrical works? IS this true or have I misread the info? Also if this is the case, ie that electrical work can be carried out by an engineer, how does one get a cert of compliance.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum. We are a just a bunch of motor heads and electricity is not really our specialty. I'm sure there is a home repair or electricity forum that might better answer your questions. But if you have any questions on cycles and cycle parts, you found the right place.... :D

The short answer is NO.

The system is setup as a very closed shop and doesn't seem to allow for any exemptions for professionally qualified engineers - effectively, the only way to obtain a licence is via an apprenticeship.

In my view, the system is well overdue for an overhaul.
