      dang. Looks like they took the UK stance and the USA stance, decided that both let them hit up everyone for permit fees thus increasing the councils incomes, and so we now are close to needing permits to change lightbulbs... Hmm...
      At least UK still allows people who are 'qualified' to do the work...

          there is always the argument over the term qualified with people claiming only those licensed are qualified and other saying some of those who are licensed are not qualified either..lol... meanwhile we have laws saying you can be licensed one time for a car, but need relicensed every few years for a forklift or a utility lift. All about money to me...

            This sounds like a good thing. I have seen some handymens work and it can get pretty bad.
            They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
            She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
            I can't help it if I'm lucky

              Of course it will still happen, but if it happens to discourage a few handymen from doing it I think that’s great. I’ve seen some pretty sketchy work done by handymen and homeowners out there.

                My question is, how do inspect the installation of a light fixture?
