Occupier’s licence (O)

The Occupier’s licence was abolished in 2010 and is no longer available to new applicants.

Can I still renew my Occupier’s licence?

Yes. Existing licence holders can renew their licence, but failure to do so by the renewal date will result in cancellation of the licence.

Fees

Refer to ESV’s Licensing fees page for each licence type.

Renewing your Occupier’s licence

ESV will send an email reminder to you 3 months prior to your licence expiry,

It is your responsibility to ensure your licence is current and that ESV has the correct contact details for you.

Energy Safe Victoria must cancel the licence of an electrical worker who does not apply for renewal of the licence by the renewal date specified on the licence card.

Read more about renewing a licence or replacing a licence.

You can renew your licence via the ESVConnect portal with a Credit card.

Responsibilities

Everyone holding an Occupier’s licence must work in accordance with the regulations and legislation.

Part 3 of the Electricity Safety Act 1998 Electricity Safety (Installations) Regulations 2009 says:

For any electrical installation work carried out on the occupier’s electrical installation, a Certificate of Electrical Safety for either prescribed or non-prescribed electrical installation work must be completed and certified by the licence holder that the completed electrical installation work has been tested and complies with the Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules (AS/NZS 3000), the legislation and regulations.

Where prescribed electrical installation work is carried out, the licence holder must engage a Licensed Electrical Inspector to undertake an electrical inspection.
