Free visual safety check of your homes electrics: I will carry out a free visual inspection of your existing fuse box/consumer unit and further inspect the age and condition of other electrical accessories such as sockets, light fittings, cables and earthing. I will then report to the client and make recommendations if necessary, and advise the client if further investigation and testing is prudent.

WHAT IS PART P ?
Part P forms part of the Building Regulations and was introduced by the government on January 1st 2005. It covers electrical repairs and electrical work in England and Wales, and applies to electrical works in or attached to residences, in the common parts of communal residences such as flats, and includes access areas in flats such as hallways and shared amenities in blocks of flats such as laundries and gymnasiums. Part P also applies to electrical installations located in outbuildings such as detached garages, sheds and greenhouses and applies to parts of the electrical installation located on land around dwellings such as garden lighting.
The aim of Part P of the Building Regulations is to improve the health and safety of people and to eliminate the risk of fire, electrocution and other injuries electrical work poses. All work to which Part P applies must conform to UK standard BS 7671:2018, 'Requirements for Electrical Installations' (The IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition). BS 7671 covers requirements for design, installation, inspection, testing verification and certification of electrical installations. It must be completed by electricians who are registered with government-approved schemes. Certain electrical work carried out within dwellings / homes is what is known as 'Notifiable work'. After 'Notifiable work' has been completed, electricians must provide residents with a 'Building Regulations Certificate of Compliance' and an electrical safety certificate to confirm that the work conforms with both Part P and BS 7671:2018
WHAT IS NOTIFIABLE WORK
Any electrical work carried out that involves any new cables to be installed will be inspected and tested and an electrical certificate issued to confirm that the work is safe and complies with the regulations. The certificate will either be a 'Minor Works certificate' or a full 'Electrical Installation Certificate' depending on the work involved. Certain electrical works is what is known as : 'Notifiable'. What this means is that after the work has been completed the electrician will complete a full 'Electrical Installation Certificate' and then details of the completed works will be submitted to the NICEIC who in turn will issue a 'Building Regulations Certificate of Compliance' for the client to keep. Local Building Control will also be notified by the NICEIC and will have details of the completed works on their records.
THE FOLLOWING WORK IS NOTIFIABLE:
1. New installations.
2. Full rewires.
3. New consumer unit.
4. A new circuit (example: complete new lighting circuit or new cooker circuit)
5. A modification or addition to a circuit in a special location (locations containing a bath, shower, swimming pool or sauna)
6. The addition of garden lighting where the lights are not fixed to a permanent building structure.
WHY CHOOSE AN NICEIC REGISTERED ELECTRICIAN
The main benefits of using an NICEIC registered electrician are:
SAFETY AND COMPETENCE
NICEIC registered electricians meet with strict entry requirements and a stringent examination of a representative sample of their work, documentation, equipment and qualifications. Electricians are further assessed on a regular basis by an NICEIC area engineer to ensure that they are competent and capable of meeting the relevant technical and safety standards, codes of practice and rules of the schemes they are registered to.
COMPLIANCE WITH BUILDING REGULATIONS
Electricians registered to the NICEIC Building Regulations Schemes are authorised to self-certify their work without hindrance from Local Authority Building Control. This saves you both time and money when undertaking work that requires notification under the Building Regulations.
