3 documents demonstrating decommissioning are required, including:

 2. A geo-tagged* photo of the unit compliance plate clearly showing the brand, model and serial number of the decommissioned unit.

 3. A recycling receipt for the decommissioned unit

If the unit was not able to be removed for recycling because it is located in a ceiling or wall cavity, provide a clear description on the Certificate of Electrical Safety detailing the method of decommissioning that made the unit permanently inoperable.

 Activities 6 and 8

2 documents demonstrating decommissioning are required for activities 6 and 8, including:

1. A geo-tagged photo of the switchboard, showing the slab heater circuit disconnected and made safe at the switchboard
2. A clear description on the Certificate of Electrical Safety detailing how the unit was decommissioned.

 The Essential Services Commission requires this additional evidence to confirm that the decommissioned unit was eligible to be upgraded under the VEET Scheme, and has been permanently rendered inoperable.
