From 8 November 2019 only Licensed Electrical Inspectors will have access to Online Services

ESVConnectExternal Link for licensing, registration and Certificates of Electrical Safety (COES) was launched in July 2019 as a replacement system for Online Services. Industry was advised that Online Services would remain accessible for a limited time so certificates yet to be completed could be finalised and distributed to customers. This accessibility period has now concluded. After 8 November 2019:
  • Licensed Electrical Workers (LEWs), Registered Electrical Contractors (RECs) and Inspection Companies (ICs) will no longer have access Online Services.
  • ESV will not amend, alter or make any requested changes to eCOES completed and certified in Online Services.
Licensed Electrical Inspectors (LEIs) will continue to have access to Online Services allowing them to lodge Paper COES on behalf of RECs and to lodge certificates in progress. Paper COES including the IVR system will remain available for use until further enhancements are completed in ESVConnect. All functions previously available through online services are now supported by ESVExternal Link ConnectExternal Link . If you have not upgraded to ESVConnect, or know someone yet to upgrade, please do so immediately to take advantage of ESVConnect's features. You can upgrade hereExternal Link .
