Labourer card changes

As of 1st August, if you’re applying for your first Electrical Labourer card you’ll now need to gain a JIB-recognised health and safety qualification such as CCNSG Safety Passport or IOSH Working Safely, or hold a JIB-recognised theory qualification, plus provide evidence of working for an electrical contractor.

From 1st January 2019 you’ll need to meet the new criteria before you can renew.  Your current expiry date still applies.

The ECS Health, Safety & Environmental Assessment – exemptions!

If you have or gain one of the safety qualifications, these are classed as three-year exemptions from the ECS HS&E Assessment. This means if you gained one of those qualifications in the last three years (according to the date shown on your qualification certificate), you won’t have to take a separate ECS HS&E Assessment this time. But you will need to the next time you renew.

Gold Card Changes

From 1st January anyone applying for an Installation or Maintenance Electrician gold card for the first time will be required to sign up to Registered Electrician status. This means you must meet the qualification requirements for Installation Electrician (such as NVQ Level 3 or JIB-approved equivalent) but also have the BS7671:2018 qualification.

I’m an Installation Electrician Gold Card Holder

If you keep your card up-to-date and renew your card on time, you don’t have to do anything different. However, if your card is more than a year out of date by 1st July 2019, you’ll have to meet the requirements for Registered Electrician (including holding the 18th Edition qualification) if you wish to renew your card.

I’m already a Registered Electrician

From 1st July 2019 all existing Registered Electricians who are currently on the 17th Edition of the Wiring Regulations will need to have gained their 18th Edition qualification to retain their Registered Electrician status. You can upload your qualification via your MyECS account and this will automatically update your virtual ECS card that’s available via the MyECS app.
