There have been changes within the Restricted Electrical Permit Process.
Previously, enduring the tough process through the Electrical Safety Office to obtain a Restricted Electrical Permit was just short of a nightmare.
But now, the good news is, if you fall within the below eligible trades, you can simply apply directly by providing your licence or required qualification documents.
There is no longer a need to provide supporting evidence letter from your employer, for these trades only.
Previously, every trade had to include a letter from their employer stating the appliances, voltage and requirements for Restricted Electrical work.
Now, with some changes within the ESO, selected trades can simply fill out Form 21, provide your (for example) plumbing licence or the required qualification and apply.
Take a look below if you are one of those trades that will not need supporting employer letter documentation when applying for your Restricted Electrical Permit.
