Application for Dispensation

Electrical contracting companies who intend to apply wages and/or conditions on certain engineering construction sites in Scotland, which differ from the SJIB National Working Rules, are required to obtain approval (Dispensation) from the SJIB before commencement of the work. This helps to prevent misunderstandings about the conditions after work has commenced.
