So I suppose it the same with any scheme it’s only as good as those using it for it to work as intended.

LOL. If the non-REC certifying the work was caught they would be jailed for illegally carrying out Restricted Electrical Works (as some already have been), and for acting in a manner likely to imply that they were a REC. 

 

The penalties are imprisonment for up to three years and/or a fine of up to 15,000 Euro.

Out of interest, why are you certifying someone else's installation work?

 

The only time that this is permissible is after having filed a Change of Contractor request, and then only after having received written authority from RECI to proceed. In every other situation it is prohibited and will result in disciplinary action (including expulsion) from RECI. The only other exception to this is the "Test Only" cert where an installation has been de-energised for over six months to get the DSO (ESB) reconnection.

Hi Risteard,

 

Thanks for your help. I was in negotiating stage when talking to these guys and based on "Their story" I insisted of a change in contractor for anything to be done.

There is no way I would have done it otherwise. After further investigation there was no way I was going to get that. I will probably contact RECI/SElectric regarding this

as it looks like they are getting non REC's to carry out there works. Can't be 100% sure though, yet...
