4. Every person, partnership or association wishing to carry out electrical installation work, whether additions, alterations or repairs to an existing electrical installation or a new electrical installation, must, in the case of work not requiring any connection to the network of a public service company or of a municipal service and before beginning the work, declare to the Régie du bâtiment the work he or it intends to carry out.
However, the Government may, by regulation, determine the conditions on which a single declaration of work may, during the period it fixes, cover all the work carried out by the holder of a licence.
In case of superior force, a licence holder who cannot transmit a declaration before the beginning of the work shall do so as soon as possible.
