Part P-registered-electrician

In 2005 the Government introduced Part P to the electrical industry which requires any Electricians carrying out certain work in a domestic premises to be registered with a Part P scheme prov

ider, the 5 main providers being NICEIC, Elecsa, Napit, Stroma & the ECA, in 2013 the requirements for Part P were amended to reduce the scope of works included.

As a company we get asked by a lot of potential customers in Eltham, Sidcup, Swanley, Lee Green etc if we are registered, the answer is Yes, we most certainly are. What this means is we have been assessed by our chosen scheme operator, our work has been checked, along with our Qualifications, Health & safety policy, Test equipment calibration certificate & all insurances we have in place to ensure that we comply with all the necessary regulations.

Using a registered Electrician for any work in your home will give you the peace of mind that all relevant criteria has been met, the work carried out should also carry a 6 year insurance backed guarantee from the chosen scheme provider (ours does) & if any issues are found then they will endeavour to get them resolved.

If you are having work carried out then it is the responsibility of the homeowner/Landlord to ensure all work is carried out in accordance with Part P, local authorities also possess the power to enforce any non compliant work to be removed or altered until satisfactory so we recommend carrying out some research before hiring an Electrician to undertake any notifiable works in your home.

  • Circuit alteration or addition in a special location (in certain zones)
  • Installation of one or more new circuits
  • Installation of a replacement consumer unit (fuse box)
  • Rewire of all circuits
  • Partial rewire
