ELECSA Part P


ELECSA Part P

The Building Regulations are managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). Part P is an amendment of the Building Regulations introduced by the government, effective from January 1st 2005. These regulations introduced safety standards to electrical installations within domestic properties.

This means that, with few exceptions, any electrical work undertaken in your home such as the addition of a new electrical circuit or any work in your kitchen, bathroom or garden area must be notified to the Local Authority Building Control for inspection.

The Part P requirement is that “Reasonable provision shall be made in the design and installation of electrical installations in order to protect persons operating, maintaining or altering the installations from fire or injury.

Work affected by Part P is subject to notification to, and inspection by, building control bodies. However, calling in a building control officer takes time and costs money. The solution to this problem is self-certification.

Part P Competent Person Schemes like ELECSA were introduced at the same time as Part P to permit firms that had been assessed as sufficiently competent, to self-certify that their work complies with all applicable requirements of the Building Regulations.

Self-certification benefits the householder because by using a Competent Person they don’t have to pay building control fees or submit a building notice. In addition, householders have the important reassurance that by using a Competent Person, they are using a firm that has been independently assessed and certified as competent to carry out the work.

In addition, all authorised Competent Persons schemes are required to give the customers of their registered installer firms the opportunity to purchase an insurance backed warranty against the risk that the work carried out does not comply with the Building Regulations.

Independent Dispute Resolution


Independent Dispute Resolution

Referenceline works with CEDR to offer Independent Dispute Resolution for businesses displaying this logo. If the business is a member of another body which also offers dispute resolution, then that process will take precedence.

Consumers and businesses must first try to resolve any dispute. If this is still unresolved after 8 weeks, or if the business makes a final offer which the customer does not accept, then the consumer should contact Referenceline, who will advise on the process for contacting CEDR.

If CEDR is able to consider the matter, then Referenceline will publish CEDR's decision as well as the customer's review and the business's response. Read more about CEDR.

Ratings Moderation. If CEDR finds in favour of the business, then Referenceline will publish the review but may exclude that customer's ratings from the total for that business, if this will help consumers make a more informed choice.

The service is free to consumers. It is also free to businesses unless CEDR finds in favour of the consumer.

The Registered Competent Person Electrical search facility lists all electricians registered to work for householders in England and Wales, making finding the right person for the job easier than ever before.

All electricians listed and permitted to display the mark are registered with an electrical Competent Person Scheme Operator, and have been authorised by Government to self-certify that their work is compliant with Building Regulations. This means they meet strict entry requirements, their work is regularly assessed, demonstrating their ability and ongoing competence, and that it meets the correct standards.
