Posted By Topic: Prescribed Electrical Work In NZ Question

Hello,

I am an electrical engineer having some troubled figuring out what type of electrical work needs licensing in NZ.

Am I correct to understand that electrical engineers can design and plan electrical installations and switchboards as well as sign electrical designs without needing licensing and/or registration?

Is licensing and/or registration needed only in order to physically perform electrical work?

Assistance is much appreciated,
Eng. Andrey Vulfovich

Design isn't PEW. However, Reg 14 says that the designs must be safe.

Electricity Act 1992 s74 says that a registered person needs to hold a practising licence to do prescribed electrical work (alternatively under provisional or employer licence)
