Over 200 electricians from Mzuzu, Mzimba and Nkhata Bay districts attended electrical installations sensitisation meetings organized by Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA). Standards of electrical installations and the licensing procedure were the main issues discussed during the meetings which were conducted from 31st January to 4th February 2022 in the mentioned districts.

The Electricity By-Laws of 2012 stipulate that no person shall practice as an electrical installer unless they possess a valid permit issued by MERA.
