Electrical Licence to Practice - Do you know your responsibilities?

The SparkSafe Electrical Licence to Practice (LtP) initiative is the first of its kind in the UK. The initiative became subject to a formal Procurement Guidance Note (PGN 01/16 Electrical Licence to Practice Initiative for Electrical Workers) in February 2016. PGN 01/16 requires that only Licensed electrical workers are employed to undertake electrical installation work on behalf of Government.
