Part P

Part P is the building regulation that covers electrical safety in dwellings. To register with a Competent Person Scheme (CPS), such as NICEIC, NAPIT or ELECSA, which will allow you to self-certify your work,  you will have to demonstrate your competence as an electrical installer, have your 17th Edition wiring regulations (BS7671), know how to inspect and test and show that you adhere to the latest Part P building regulations.  The CPS can then issue your customer with a Part P electrical certificate.

Changes to Part P

There have been changes made to this part of the building regs that have removed the requirement for many sole traders working as kitchen fitters, plumbers and heating engineers to have to notify their work, if the work is an extension or addition to an existing circuit that is not within a special location. Therefore they do not need to be part of a CPS now in many cases. However, any electrical work carried out should still comply with the relevant standards, for example Part P, and you will still need to be competent to install, inspect, test and issue Minor Works certificates and Electrical Installations certificates on a domestic electrical installation. All new circuits or work in special locations must be notified.
