|COES fees to increase on 1 July 2017|
ESV has held COES fees steady since 2014-15, however, to offset our investment in the development of a new online system, which will make it quicker and easier to buy, complete and lodge COES, our COES fees will increase from 1 July 2017.
We have tried to keep this fee increase to a minimum. Refer to the table below for the new COES fees.
Please note ESV will not be raising licensing fees in the 2017-18 financial year.
Fees relating to the Electrical Safety (Installation) Regulations 2009
|Electronic Certificate of Electrical Safety form for prescribed electrical work||$28.30||$30.70|
|Paper Certificate of Electrical Safety form for prescribed electrical work||$30.80||$33.45|
|Periodic Certificate of Electrical Safety form for non-prescribed electrical work||$714.00||$775.05|
|Non-prescribed Certificate of Electrical Safety (electronic)||$6.60||$6.75*|
|Non-prescribed Certificate of Electrical Safety (paper)||$7.25||$7.40*|
* Prescribed fees are not tied to the Monetary Units Act 2004 as the fee unit is less than one unit under the Act. It is expected annual changes to this fee will occur on 1 July each year, by an amount not greater than the indexation in the Monetary Units Act.
