The administration of an electrical, plumbing, gas-fitting or automotive gas-fitting contractor licence requires the licensed applicant to nominate a responsible person in their business.
A contractor must not carry on business unless the prescribed work is subject to the supervision of a nominated manager who –
The contractor online licence application has a place for recording the nominated manager's details.
This person will have completed the required contractor training course (electrical only) with a Registered Training Organisation and will sign the paper work submitted to controlling organisations. (Inspection companies and or Local Government)
Should the nominated manager leave the business the contractor has 60 days to find a new nominated manager or the licence will be reclassified to an inactive status until such time as a new person is appointed to the position. You will need to update the nominated manager details on your My Licence Contractor account.
A practitioner can remove himself from being a Nominated Manager at a Contracting business by logging into his personal My Licence account, Associated Licences tab and editing the details.
A nominated manager can work across several businesses at once but does need to be named on each contracting licence by the business owner.
You can have more than one nominated manager for each occupational class. A business contracting for electrical and plumbing work, for example, is required to have at least one nominated manager, but may choose to appoint more than one nominated manager in order to ensure the business has the available skills (during leave periods or to expand the scope of work that can be performed by the business). Electrical contractors (electrical only) are able to have 'signatories' - these are staff who are permitted to certify that the work is compliant with the relevant standards. The nominated manager is the person responsible for the quality of the work undertaken by the 'signatories'. You must add the names of each 'signatory' to your online application / My Licence account.
