This certificate registers an Auckland electrician under the Electricians Act 1952 to undertake certain types of electrical wiring work. Around 1900, electricians had to follow rules laid out by the Council of Fire Underwriters of New Zealand. Electricity suppliers also licensed electricians working in their areas, but refused to accept licences issued by other authorities. Nationwide registration began in 1926.
