Electrician's register to go live
A new register is being set up for electricians carrying out domestic electrical work.
From the beginning of next month, any electrican carrying out this type of work must be registered as part of "Safe Electric".
"The concern that we would have is the policing of that- of how they will do that," said Chris Lundy of the Association of Electrical Contractors, "because it is difficult to do - however, it's very good for the industry, we hope."
The issue is on the agenda at the Electrical Trade Show 2013 which is taking place in Dublin today.
