Notification of electrical work

In Tasmania electrical work must be notified to TechSafe Australia.

A Certificate of Electrical Compliance (CEC) is the usual notification method. This is the blue copy in the CEC book.

The CEC book has 25 forms in triplicate. Books are currently available free from Service Tasmania (external link) or TechSafe Australia offices (external link).

You have 3 days for notification of electrical work that is left either energised or capable of being energised.

Like for like replacement and repairs to an electrical installation or equipment are not required to be notified.

The drop box for Certificates of Electrical Compliance (CECs) can be found below:

  • Henty House, 1 Civic Square, Launceston (drop box is at the rear entrance of the building in the laneway, near the sliding doors) or the ground floor concierge at Henty House during business hours.
  • 28 Reibey Street, Ulverstone.
  • 2 Jannah Court, Mornington.

Alternatively you can submit CECs via:
