What does Part P mean?
Part P of the Building Regulations was introduced by government in 2005 and affects all electrical work carried out in dwellings. People carrying out electrical work in homes and gardens in England and Wales should follow the requirements set out in Part P of the Building Regulations to ensure that they are complying with the law. These rules are designed to ensure that electrical work is safe. Part P has been introduced in order to reduce the number of deaths, injuries and fires caused by faulty electrical installations.

Why choose an ELECSA Approved Contractor?
ELECSA helps to protect householders and consumers from the dangers of unsafe and unsound electrical installations. All registered contractors have been assessed to ensure they are technically competent and they are reassessed on a regular basis to check they are continuously compliant.
Contractors registered to ELECSA Building Regulations Schemes are authorised to self-certify their work without hindrance from Local Authority Building Control. This saves you both time and money when undertaking work that requires notification under the Building Regulations.
Guarantee of standards - If ever a customer and an Approved Contractor are unable to resolve an alleged deficiency in the technical standard of electrical work, the customer can make a formal complaint to the ELECSA.
