Using a Part P registered Electrician
What is Part P?
Part P forms part of the Building Regulations. The principle of the Building Regulations is to ensure that consistent standards are applied to the construction of buildings including its structure, fire safety, sound insulation, drainage, ventilation and electrical safety.
Part P states that anyone carrying out electrical installation work in a home must make sure that the work is designed and installed by a domestic electrician to protect people from fire and electric shocks
Part P applies to any changes made to existing installations, including any parts that have been rewired. In April 2013 further changes were introduced, reducing the range of electrical installation work that is notifiable - removing some requirements in kitchens and outdoors.
Electricians carrying out work in England and Wales have to comply with Part P of the Building Regulations whereas in Scotland it is the Building Standards system. At the present time Northern Ireland has no equivalent statutory requirement.
What electrical work is covered by this law?
All electrical installation work either inside a home, garden, out building and conservatory must meet all parts of the building regulations
All electrical work must either be reported to the local-authority building-control, or be carried out by an electrician who is registered with one of the Government-approved scheme providers such as NICEIC, STROMA, ELECSA and NAPIT.
Who is responsible for making sure that electrical work meets the requirements of Part P?
By law, all home owners and landlords must be able to prove that all electrical installation work meets Part P, or they will be committing a criminal offence.
Local authorities can make home owners or landlords remove or alter any work that does not meet the Building Regulations.
