OFTEC Electrical (Part P) registration
In 2005 the Government introduced electrical safety rules into the Building Regulations for England and Wales. This means that most fixed electrical installation work in homes must now, by law, meet Part P of the Building Regulations.
OFTEC offers electrical (Part P) registration for heating technicians who wish to install and self-certify fixed low or extra-low voltage electrical installations in dwellings – electric vehicle charging points are included in this scope. All technicians who register are automatically listed on the Registered Competent Person Electrical website which contains details of all electricians registered to work for householders in England and Wales, making finding the right person for the job easy for consumers.
All electricians listed are permitted to display the scheme’s logo, showing they meet strict entry requirements and that their work meets the correct standards and is regularly assessed as well as demonstrating their ability and ongoing competence.
