OFFENCES UNDER THE ACT. No prosecutions for offences related to employment of unlicensed persons, or for contracting whilst unlicensed, were initiated during 1985/86. One holder of an Electrical Workers Licence was called to appear before the Board, to show cause why his licence should not be suspended, cancelled or otherwise dealt with, on a complaint relating to his performance of electrical work. Nine Electrical Contractors were called upon to provide explanations of their failure to rectify defects on electrical installations as required by the Electricity Commission. ******************* GENERAL. The Board held a total of 12 Meetings in the 1985/86 financial year. The Board continues to maintain an open door policy, so that any electrical worker, contractor or employer, who wishes to attend a meeting to clarify or discuss any matter relating to the Act, or the Board's administration, will be invited to do so. In an effort to maintain this policy the Board periodically meets in centres outside of Darwin. The success of this policy may be judged by the fact that the Board, since its inception in 1978, has received only one written inquiry from the Office of the Ombudsman, and that inquiry was in 1979.
