eCOMS - helping you to meet your certification scheme requirements
Certification schemes using the Electrotechnical Assessment Specification (EAS 2020), places requirements on electrical contractors, or enterprises, to undertake a competence review of employed persons. This requires the enterprise to record and manage skills, qualifications, observations and general information about employed persons to ensure that they are adequately trained and supervised for the work they are undertaking. This documentation will be audited by the Certification body during a technical assessment.
eCOMS is a web-based tool developed by ECA which provides Members with an easy to use solution to maintain accurate operative training and observation records.
Specifically, it assists Enterprises to meet the requirements of their certification scheme by providing documentation and training history logs. It maintains a detailed history about operatives as they change roles within the organisation as well as when they join and leave employment.
eCOMS also allows users to quickly visualise the three EAS metrics for all current operatives and, using a simple traffic light colour scheme identify what level of supervision is required for each operative.
eCOMS is available free to all ECA Members.
If you wish to use eCOMS please contact your Nominated Representative. They have access to the system and are able to add new eCOMS administrators to their account in MyECA.
The eCOMS user guide and a guide for Nominated Representatives to add eCOMS administrators can both be found at the bottom of this webpage.
eCOMS features include:
- Recording of operative details, training and qualifications
- Recording of observations
- Recording of internal training courses
- Recording of company documentation
- Reporting on competence levels & supervision requirements
