What is Part P?

All electrical work carried out in the home in England and Wales should follow new rules set out in the Building Regulations (January 2005). Often referred to as Part P, these rules were introduced to safeguard the public, reducing deaths, injuries and fires.

Professional electricians are legally required to be registered with relevant bodies, i.e. NICEIC, ECA.

Most domestic electrical work is now covered by the Building Regulations, so the best person to use is an electrician who is registered with a government approved Competent Person scheme. This means that they are qualified to carry out the work according to the building regulations, eliminating building control charges. A certificate to confirm that the work complies to the new rules is issued on completion.

Any person carrying out electrical work in your home must comply to the new ruling, and issue a certificate. This ensures that the work is safe, and you have a record to prove it.
