Risk-based Oversight Information for LDCs

Starting July 6, 2020, ESA will look at the risk involved in electrical wiring work to determine when to visit a site. We call this "Risk-Based Oversight" (RBO). This means spending more effort on high-risk electrical wiring work and less on low-risk work, without compromising safety.

All electrical contractors will operate under this system in 2020. ESA will no longer administer the Authorized Contractor Program (ACP).

RBO and what it means for Local Distribution Companies (LDCs)

On March 28, 2019, ESA held a webinar for LDCs on Risk-Based Oversight. The one hour-long webinar introduced RBO and ESA’s plans for implementation, followed by a Q&A session. View the webinar here:
