What is the Electrical Badge? How do I get one?

What is electrical wiring work?

The definition of electrical wiring work can be found in the Gas & Electricity (Consumer Safety) Act 2017 and relates to the physical work of installing, repairing, altering, removing or adding to an electrical installation.

In NSW, only an authorised electrician can perform electrical wiring work. A Tasker who is an authorised electrician may have the Electrical Badge.

Please note that the Badge is granted based on a point in time check which means results only reflect relevant records on the date that the check was completed . If you engage an Electrical Badge holder for tasks involving electrical work, you should verify their current credentials prior to the task being carried out. You can also check to see if the tasker is an authorised electrician through the relevant register in your State. 

Once you’ve accepted an offer you can request the following details from an Electrical Badge holder: 

  • Full name
  • Licence no.
