Building Standards Approved Certifier


Building Standards Approved Certifier

The building standards system in Scotland is established by the Building (Scotland) Act 2003. The Act gives powers to Scottish Ministers to make building regulations and other supporting legislation as necessary, to fulfil the purposes of the Act.

The intention of the building standards system is to ensure that all building work to new and existing buildings meets reasonable standards by securing the health, safety, welfare and convenience of people in and around buildings, furthering the conservation of fuel and power and to further the achievement of sustainable development.

The status of Approved Certifier is only given to people who hold the appropriate qualifications and have sufficient experience to certify that an installation is compliant.

The NICEIC maintains a register of electrical contractors, assessed every year by one of the Council's Area Engineers to confirm that their business and the technical standard of their electrical work complies with the Council's rules.

Where a consumer is not satisfied with the technical standard of an Approved Contractor's electrical work, the NICEIC offers a complaints resolution service.

NICEIC Domestic Installers are registered to self-certify domestic electrical installation work in England and Wales



Part P Competent Person


Part P Competent Person

A 'Competent Person' is a firm that has been approved by one of the government-approved Part P schemes as sufficiently competent to self-certify that its work complies with the Building Regulations. Schemes authorised by the Communities and Local Government (CLG) are listed on its website.

A registered firm is not required to notify a building control body of its proposals to carry out electrical installation work before it begins, or to have the work inspected on completion. This reduces costs for the customer as the additional charges for calling out a building control body can be avoided.

If a firm wishes to become a Competent Person it must first be vetted to ensure it meets the conditions of registration, including the required levels of competence. The minimum standard of technical competence required is as follows: (a) Electrical work in dwellings is designed, installed, inspected and tested to the standard required by BS 7671. (b) Applicants for a Part P Competent Person Scheme are assessed to be able to work to these standards.
