    Sounds typically ridiculous! While I'm here, the Statutory Instrument (the only legal part pertaining to electrical installations) got varied a while back. This means you can do a whole load more without notifying Building Control.

    Still be wary of zone one in bathrooms, new circuits and stuff outside (summary).

    Constantly wary of the postcodes changing when working the border between NSW & QLD, at least in Blighty I know which rules I'm breaking... Ha!?!

    Any of who do not work in that field anymore but are qualified electricians, will not be allowed to do any major electrical work at home without first completing the goverments new competent person scheme. This comes into force on the 1st January 2004.

    This site is designed primarily for firms that carry out fixed electrical installation work in dwellings in England and Wales and want to be able to self-certify that their work complies with the Building Regulations once Part P (electrical safety) is implemented on 1st January 2005.

    The Part 'P' Competent Person Scheme offered here was approved by the Secretary of State on 29th June 2004.

    It is provided by BRE Certification Ltd, with the support and cooperation of the Electrical Contractors' Association and the IEE.
