The IET define the EAS. As I have observed they have removed the competent person from Sept 21 from being acceptable with just an 18th edition qualification.
Now they have removed that and the acceptable verification for this level is beyond what most 48 year old plus contractors have.
there are contractors out there who have experience and older quals (anyone who says grandad rights is in bed with these lot) who can no longer be a QS should they lose them, forcing them to employ people who aren’t really QS level but satisfy EAS set out by IET.
From my experience in assessing tue EAS, this is a money making agenda.
IET is restricting the electrical contract industry to make money.
