Benefits of using a Competent Registered Electrician

Using an electrician registered with a Government-approved scheme (England and Wales) to undertake electrical installation work in your home provides you with the assurance that:

  • They work to the British Standard for electrical safety (BS 7671)

  • They meet strict entry requirements, which take account of qualifications, skills, knowledge, experience and insurance policies

  • Their work is regularly assessed by a Government-approved Scheme Operator to ensure their ongoing competence and that it meets the correct standards

  • They will give you a BS7671 certificate to confirm that their work has been designed, inspected and tested in line with the BS7671 electrical safety standard. If the work is notifiable, they will also arrange a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate to confirm compliance with Building Regulations, which should be issued to you by their Scheme Operator within 30 days of the completion of the installation.

  • They are permitted to self-certify their work against the Building Regulations, saving you the need to notify the work with your Local Authority Building Control department

  • They have valid insurance policies in place, including Public Liability Insurance 

  • All Government-approved scheme operators have a complaints procedure, which means they will investigate complaints about registered electricians who have not complied with technical standards

  • They have been authorised by Government to self-certify that their work is compliant with Building Regulations.
