Sparkies working across borders no longer zapped by red tape

CLARENCE Valley electricians working across state borders will have new laws making it easier for them to do business today.

NSW Fair Trading Minister Matthew Mason-Cox said the Mutual Recognition Bill 2014 would allow certain licensed occupations, such as electricians to carry out their trade in NSW on the basis of the license they held in their home state.

"Today, NSW, Queensland and Victorian electricians will be able to work across the Queensland and Victorian borders using the licence issued by their home state,'' Mr Mason-Cox said.

"This means electricians no longer need two licences to work when they are doing work on the border.

"They will face less paperwork and fewer fees that they would otherwise pay to hold numerous licences for the same work.

"Queensland already recognises some NSW electrician's licences under their Electrical Safety Act and regulations."
