Reg. 570/05) under Part VIII of the Electricity Act, 1998. The Undue Hardship Clause would provide the Statutory Director at the Electrical Safety Authority with discretion to allow for additional time to meet the Master Electrician licence renewal requirements to individuals who were not able to satisfy the requirements in the stipulated time frame due to extenuating circumstances. The Statutory Director would be able to exercise this discretion after the stipulated time frame for renewal has lapsed.
