New for 2012, the C&G 2382-12 Self
* only while stocks last
Part P was introduced in January 2005, it is a part of the building regulations series. Part P covers electrical installations and the requirements as set out within part P. It is enforceable in the same way as any of the other building regulations and the body who police it, at local level is your building control office. Building regulation Part's range from Part A (structure) to Part P (electrical)
So what stops you
just wiring your own electric's? Nothing does until you come to sell your
property. You could phone your building control office before you
start your rewire and inform them of your intent and request building
control to visit and they will.
Well at least they will charge you (£350 at my local building control) and then send out an electrician who is registered with one of the Part P self certification schemes. They will inspect your work and either pass it and issue a certificate or fail it and then charge you to come out and re test after the non compliance has been sorted out.
Now to join any of
the self certification schemes you need a number a qualifiers first:-
When the scheme was thought up it was decided that so many experienced and highly skilled electricians had no qualifications or non relevant ones there needed to be a fast track method to qualify. These are C&G 2382-12 (17th edition) and C&G 2394 (inspection and test). Anyone with these qualifications should have no problem applying for any of the schemes, please see below for the individual bodies requirements.
