The electrical industry, through the EAS Management Committee has published a new 'EAS Qualifications Guide' that outlines the requirements for qualified supervisors and persons carrying out electrical inspection and testing. Details can be found BFC's guidance document available on the Competent Person Scheme tab of this website.
EAS Qualifications Guide
The EAS Qualifications Guide is developed under the direction of the EAS Management Committee to provide supporting information to the Electrotechnical Assessment Specification Appendix 4 regarding the requirements for qualified supervisors and persons carrying out electrical inspection and testing.
The guide is to be used by scheme applicants, Enterprises and Certification/Registration Bodies to identify the eligible qualifications that are acceptable to Certification/Registration Bodies for the work categories within the EAS, as well as providing guidance when the required qualifications are not held.
The guide has a refreshed format and the wording has been updated throughout for clarification and consistency. The new Domestic Electrician apprenticeship and Experienced Worker Assessment are now included. Older qualifications have been reviewed and updated.
