How do I find a licensed electrician?
It is a legal requirement that all electrical work in Western Australia is only carried out by qualified electrical tradespeople licensed to work in Western Australia and who are employed by an electrical contractor licensed to carry out work in this State.
Licensed electrical contractors have been expertly trained to work safely around electricity, are qualified and will guarantee the quality of their work.
Electrical work includes rewiring or replacing power points, moving or replacing light switches, installing permanently connected electrical appliances such as a ceiling fans or outdoor lights and repairing appliances.
Electrical contractors must display their licence number on their advertising, including vehicles and stationery, so remember to check these before an electrical contractor starts work at your premises.
You can check whether an electrical contractor has the necessary qualifications by visiting the EnergySafety website and following the link to the Licensing Information System.
