Competent Person Scheme

What is the ‘Competent Person’ self certification scheme?
The ‘Competent Person’ self certification scheme was introduced to allow electrical contractors who register with a scheme to self certify compliance with the Building Regulations whenever they carry out ‘notifiable ‘work. Persons not registered on one of the approved schemes – including DIYers – need to notify or submit plans to the local Building Control office prior to carrying any work out, unless the work is non-notifiable. Refer to our Part P Notification Guide* for guidance.
A ‘Competent Person’ is a firm that has been independently assessed to show that they operate to the highest standards and are deemed to have sufficient capability and proficiency to be included in one of the government approved Part P self certification schemes, operated by:

  • NICEIC Certification Services Limited
  • BSI – British Standards Institution
  • BRE Certification Limited
