Suspension of licence card printing and posting
With the closure of our offices from March 2020, the printing and posting of Licensed Electrical Worker (LEW) licences, Registered Electrical Contractor (REC), Spotter and Lineworker cards has been temporarily suspended.
LEWs and RECs should refer to the attachment on the email you receive when your licence is newly issued or renewed, as this will serve as evidence of your current LEW licence/REC registration. You will be required to keep a copy of this on you whilst conducting electrical works.
Spotters must carry a copy of their statement of attainment for the Spotter’s course. This will be accepted as evidence of holding a valid Spotter’s registration during this closure period.
ESV will recommence printing and posting LEW, REC and Spotter cards shortly, prioritising those unable to be printed during the past six months.
Our online systems are operating as usual and our Licensing and COES teams are available to help via phone or email.
We appreciate your patience.
