Rental providers must ensure an electrical safety check of all electrical installations and fittings in the premises is conducted every two years by a licensed electrician.

If an electrical safety check has not been conducted within the last two years at the time the renter occupies the premises, the rental provider must arrange an electrical safety check as soon as practicable.

If the safety check shows electrical repairs are needed to make the property safe, the rental provider should engage an REC or a licensed electrician employed by an REC to do the repair work.
