Editor's Notes

A feature article in this Issue describes in detail some common mistakes in filling the Periodic Test Certificate (Form WR2). We hope it can help trade members fill in the Periodic Test Certificate more accurately. This could minimise the delay in the processing of endorsement applications caused by handling wrong information and omissions, clarification and making correction so as to enhance efficiency. Another feature article reports and analyses three accidents involving electric fans for your reference.

From 1 July this year, the new cable colour code is applicable to new fixed electrical installations as well as additions or alterations to existing ones in Hong Kong. Registered electrical workers should pay more attention to and be particularly careful in their works. If you have not received training on the new cable colour code, please complete it as soon as possible. Furthermore, the prohibition provisions of the Construction Workers Registration Ordinance came into effect on 1 September 2007. Unregistered construction workers are prohibited from carrying out construction work on construction sites and such workers shall not be employed. If a registered electrical worker wants to work on a construction site, he/she shall register with the Construction Workers Registration Authority beforehand. Please refer to the relevant article in News for details.
