What is a Competent Person Scheme

3.2 

COMPETENT PERSON SCHEMES 

Competent Persons Schemes were introduced by the UK Government to allow individuals and enterprises to self-certify their work complies with the Building Regulations as an alternative to submitting a building notice or using an approved inspector such as a Building control officer.

The position with several schemes operating in the market place had become confusing for householders wishing to find a competent person, as such the government asked all the Competent Persons Scheme Operators to unite and create one site and use one logo.

The new register as such has details of all Full Scope Part P electrical installers in England and Wales that are registered to carry out electrical work in domestic dwellings, those registered are entitled to use the new logo on their vehicles, website and other advertising material.

Further information can be found at www.electricalcompetentperson.co.uk. 

What is a Third Party Inspection Scheme

3.3 

THIRD PARTY CERTIFICATION FOR DOMESTIC ELECTRICAL WORK

All electrical work that is carried out in a domestic dwelling must comply with Part P of the Building Regulations. Up until the 6th April 2014 there were two means of demonstrating that the electrical work was Part P compliant:

  • Informing and having the work checked and certified by  Local Building control
  • Self-certification by the installer who completed the work and who is a member of a competent person scheme.

However after the 6th April 2014 a new third party certification scheme has been introduced for electrical installations in dwellings, where a person who is registered with a third party certification scheme can check and certify work that is undertaken by another person is Building Regulation compliant.

At present there are two bodies that are operating this scheme. However it is interesting to note that NICEIC and ELECSA have not applied.

There are concerns that it could encourage inexperienced DIY’ers to carry out potentially dangerous work. Other concerns have been expressed as regards who is responsible for an installation that has been checked by them but not installed by them. A circuit may pass all the tests but be installed in unprotected notches which weren’t available for visual inspection.

What books will I require?

 

In order to complete the tutorial, you will need your own copy of the following book ‘Electricians Guide to the Building Regulations’. You will also need it for the examination which is open book.
