- Display your Licence
Requirements to Display Your Licence
Ontario Regulation 570/05 requires that an electrical contractor prominently display their Licence number in all situations where they are communicating with the public within 90 days of the date of issuance of their licence. This includes, but is not limited to, all correspondence, contracts, invoices, business cards, advertisements (including kijiji postings), yellow page listings, websites and business vehicles.
Guidelines for Display/Placement
The following are the guidelines for the display (placement) of the Electrical Contractor Licence number on vehicles when your company name is displayed:
- Minimum size is one inch high
- Must be in either black or white lettering so that the licence number is easily visible
- Can be on the back of the truck or on both sides
- Must say ECRA/ESA Lic or ECRA/ESA before the number unless the ECRA/ESA logo is incorporated into the design
- If the name of the company does not appear on the vehicle then the ECRA/ESA logo may not be used
If using the ECRA/ESA logo it must meet the following criteria:
- ECRA/ESA’s logo will appear in black & white or colour
- ECRA/ESA’s logo and approved wording will not be altered in any way
- ECRA/ESA’s logo and approved wording will not be interfered with by Contractor logo
- ECRA/ESA’s logo must be in close proximity to Contractor logo, so as not to appear to stand alone
- Must ensure logo is used in accordance with Schedule A: Licensed Electrical Contractor Logo Use
The Contractor is responsible for 100% of all co-advertising expenses.
The Electrical Contractor Registration Agency of the Electrical Safety Authority (ECRA/ESA) considers it to be in the interest of electrical safety that the public be readily able to identify and recognize Licensed Electrical Contractors.
