Electric Power & Utilities/What happens when a person who is a certified electrician in Europe


What happens when a person who is a certified electrician in Europe (does not have the paperwork for the United States) works on electricity in the United States. The inspector in the United States is satisfied that is work passes the inspection. This European is a naturalized US citizen.

The US does not reciprocate electrical licensing or certification with other European countries.

It doesn't matter if the inspector is satisfied with the work.
If the work that was done required a licensed individual in that particular US State then this person has a problem.
