SELECT signals to Scottish Parliament that it intends to push for legislative change to make “Electrician” a regulated profession

SELECT has signalled to the Scottish Parliament that it intends to press hard to make the occupation of electrician a regulated profession in the same way that anyone working with gas is currently required by statute to be regulated.

SELECT plan to issue a report to the Minister and the Scottish Government’s ‘Better Regulation’ team which will put the case for statutory “Regulation of Electrician as a Profession” to bring Scotland into line with other European countries”.

Newell McGuiness, SELECT’s managing director, said: “It has been a long standing goal of ours to achieve Regulation for our industry because the population of Scotland is being exposed to unreasonable risks associated with electrocution and fire without even being aware of this.
