Electrical works and contracting example

Establish an electricity undertaking

John intends to establish an electrical enterprise that performs electrical installations and repairs electrical appliances. John contacts the Finnish Patent and Registration Office and submits a start-up notification to the Trade Register. John gets a business ID for his enterprise.

Next, John hires Matt as his certified supervisor of electrical works. Matt has a certificate of qualification for performing electrical works issued by Henkilö- ja yritysarviointi SETI Oy covering the scope of the enterprise operations. In this case, a sufficient qualification would be either Electrical qualification 1 (S1) or Electrical qualification 2 (S2). John signs an employment contract with Matt.

John acquires the necessary measuring instruments, other tools, and electrical safety rules and regulations.

John submits a notification to Tukes on starting electrical work activities using the form SL1. Tukes shall process the notification and register John’s enterprise as an electrical contractor. 

The Electrical qualification S2 issued by Henkilö- ja yritysarviointi SETI Oy

Sarah is holder of Electrical qualification S2 issued by Henkilö- ja yritysarviointi SETI Oy. Sarah is not willing to set up an enterprise of her own, but every now and then she would like to perform some small-scale electrical works for relatives and friends.

Sarah uses the form SL1 to submit to Tukes a notification on starting electrical work activities under her own name and personal identity code. With the same form, Sarah is able to nominate herself as the certified supervisor of electrical works.

Sarah acquires the necessary measuring instruments, other tools, and electrical safety rules and regulations.

Tukes shall register Sarah in the Electrical Contractors Register under her personal identity code, thus authorising Sarah to perform electrical installation works up to 1,000 V electrical installations and reparation of electrical appliances.
