What is five-year licensing and how does it work?

ESA updated its licensing renewal process in 2016 based on feedback through its advisory councils and public consultation. The update reduced the administrative effort it takes to renew an Electrical Contractor or Master Electrician licence. Rather than submitting full licensing documentation every year, licensees are now only required to send these documents every five years. In the other years, licensees self-declare that licensing requirements are in place and up-to-date.
