Electrical Isolation Certificate

Electrical Isolation Certificate

What is the Electrical Isolation Certificate?

The EIC is a safety certificate issued by a qualified electrician or by an Electrically Authorised Person (EAP), after all or part of an electrical system has been safely isolated by means of a Safe Isolation Procedure.

The EIC is not a legal document, but is a part of a `safe system of work procedure` used by many industries with complex electrical systems. It is usually accompanied by a Permit to Work document issued by an Authorised Person.

The Electrical Isolation Certificate must provide details on:
- Building, plant or equipment that is to be isolated from electrical supply
- Details of the isolation (e.g. fuses removed, locked off, etc.)
- Date and time of isolation
- Its being signed by a qualified electrician or an EAP
- Acceptance by a Competent Person carrying out the work required (signed and dated)
- De-isolation and hand back details
