    Can anyone help me Im getting confused with the regs! Part P applys to dwellings right? So if I was to do some electrical work in a shop does part p have any bearing on the job? Do i have to issue a certificate, or indeed can I issue a certificate? Im registered with the NICEIC but only on the domestic installer scheme so am I covered to do work in a shop? If something was to go wrong with the job, which im not expecting, would I be covered, if not by the NICEIC by my public liability insurance? Hope all that makes sense!

    Your covered either way mate!

    I only do commercial work but that doesn't always rule out Part P registering of jobs! :(


    If you were to work at say a Chippy/Hairdressers/Newsagents or Massage Parlour and there was a Flat above/behind/adjacent or in any way joined on to the commercial premises and they both share a common DNO electricity supply even if they have totally separate installations and Dis-Brds then Part P registering of works still applies! :'(

    Yes, you would still issue a certificate..

    Thanks for the replys, what certificate would you issue? My certificates all have "Domestic Installation Certificate" written in big letters across the top, can they still be used?

    Sine I got NICEIC certified because Im good at what I do, which has always been domestic work, the question I am asking now has never been asked of me by the NICEIC when I was going through registration and assessment and it has never come up with work before, so why would i want or need to know?
    Im asking now because it has come up, but you guys on here always seem incapeable of giving a straight forward answer to what i thought was a straight forward question!

    Just use the IEE certs of their website. As long as they are 7671 certs then you are fine.

    You just can't use any of the trade assoc certs that's all!

    Any electrical installation that involves a new circuit requires an EIC!

    Domestic, Commercial or Industrial, it makes no odds.


    Part P is just a Building regulation and as such has to be complied with whether the work is 'notifiable' or not, which in it;s self is a separate issue.


    Just do a 'search' on here when you have a day or so spare! ;)
