Quote/Extract: Notifiable Electrical Installations. The design, installation, inspection and testing of the electrical installation must be carried out in accordance with BS7671:2001. Before the Council can issue a Completion Certificate the applicant must provide either: 1. Where the installer is registered with Part P competent person self- certification scheme, a Building Regulations compliance certificate, within 30 days of the work being completed, or
2. Where the installer is not registered with a Part P competent person self-certification scheme but qualified to complete BS7671 installation certificates, a Building Regulation application and an appropriate BS7671 installation certificate, or
3. Where the installer is not qualified to complete BS7671 installation certificates, a Building Regulation application.
The only charges shown on the "Building Application form" are: Electrical Installations not covered by Competent Persons Scheme = £170
So, first of all who can complete a BS7671 installation certificate ?
Second, if I read it correctly the Council has less work to do if option 2 applies as opposed to Option 3 but they charge the same price !!
