Electricity Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations (ESQCR)
This site provides information about the reporting of incidents to the Electricity Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations 2002, as amended (ESQCR).
ESQCR duty holders have duties to report certain incidents that may involve the safety of those not employed by the duty holder (enforcement by HSE), major supply interruptions (enforced by Department of Energy and Climate Change) and domestic fatalities (enforced by Department for Business, Innovation and Skills).
This site provides a common portal for reporting to HSE, DECC and BIS.
