Change of contact details form 78
Electrical worker, gas fitter and plumber
As an alternative to post or email, licence holders (including companies and partnerships, where applicable) can use the department's online Change of Contact system.
To use the system you will need to have:
- The number of your current licence.
You can find the number of your permit, and see if it is current, by checking your certificate or the online licence search.
- Access to the email address or mobile phone number you last gave to the department.
Once you have entered a valid licence number, you will need to request a security code to access the system. The code will be sent to you by email or SMS.
If you are not sure what information the department has on file, part of the mobile number or email address will be displayed once a code has been sent. The code can only be used once and is valid for 48 hours or until a new code is requested.
If you do not get the code, first check your spam or junk folders. If you are still unable to access the system, please email us for assistance providing your licence details and a summary of the issue.
