Energy Safety reminds suppliers of electrical fittings and appliances (equipment) to ensure they have or obtain recognised approval for all high risk declared articles they import or manufacture before the expanded list takes effect on 1 January 2017.
Energy Safety conducts audits using the high risk database information. This involves requesting certificates and related information from electrical inspectors and gasfitters for audit purposes.
Energy Safety, as part of its audit programme, audits installations and associated certification documentation. Through these audits Energy Safety has identified some inconsistencies with the filling out of certification using templates supplied by Energy Safety.
From time to time Energy Safety receives complaints from consumers who have not received the certification for gas or electrical work carried out on their premises.

In the current risk-based regulatory regime the role of an electrical inspector is to independently verify the safety of high-risk work.
A certified design enables the responsibilities, liabilities, and accountabilities of all parties that influence safety of completed work to be identified.
