REMINDER TO ALL ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS
RECI will host 3 Safe Electric Information Evenings to inform Registered Electrical Contractors about the Single Safety Supervisory Body (SSB) which will regulate electrical contractors during the 2016 to 2022 licence period from 1st January 2016.
The information evenings are as follows:
TONIGHT Wednesday 9th December 6.30pm Shearwater Hotel, Marina Point, Ballinasloe, Co Galway
TOMORROW Thursday 10th December 6.30pm Vienna Woods Hotel, Glanmire, Co Cork
There be tea/coffee & sandwiches at 6.30pm. The evening presentations will start at 7.00pm.
The presentations will be by Paul Waldron, John Clare, Roger Muller of RECI & CER.
The Presentations will be followed by a Questions & Answers session.
Following on from last nights meeting Tuesday 8th December at 6.30pm in the Green Isle Hotel, Newland’s Cross, Dublin 22 the following concerns have been raised by Electrical Contractors.
The meeting was informed that from the 31st of January all ECSSA and RECI certificates will be void. There will be no refunds.
This statement has caused an unease with Electrical Contractors who may be out of pocket following an investment in ECSSA and RECI certificates in 2015.
Following questions from the floor the CER representatives stated that they would review the situation having listened to the Electrical Contractors concerns.
Below are some of the concerns raised by Electrical Contractors:
Which RECI certificates will be used after Jan 31st, do we know?
Which ECSSA certificates if any will be used after Jan 31st, do we know?
Are all RECI & ECSSA certificates obsolete after Jan 31st?
Are the RECI on-line certificates obsolete after Jan 31st ?
How do contractors obtain the correct certificates for use from 1st Feb?
Is there a cost implication in the compliant certificates from 1st Feb?
How much are the certificates compared to the current cost?
Will contractors be given credit for certificates already paid for – whether on-line of paper form?
All electrical contractors can contact their independent RECI Directors to raise their concerns at board level. The Independent Directors of RECI are:
Peadar Leddy (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Brendan Hegarty (email@example.com)
