Scrap Part P Accreditation Bodies

4 Comments 6th July 2010

Replace accreditation bodies with a register of persons competent to undertake domestic electrical work via training, experience and qualification i.e. as recognised by the same technical regulations that underpin all UK electrical regulations – BS7671.  Anything else is simply a confusing and inferior double-standard which benefits neither the electrical industry nor the customer.

Why does this matter?

I have served an apprenticeship, attended further and higher education, additional training courses, updated qualifications in line with the ever evolving BS7671 whenever required, and can prove all of the above.  I have been scrutinised, tested, and examined by industry professionals in each and everyone of these arenas over the past 30 years, continually improving via the experience of each and every job completed.  What possible merit is there in my being "accredited" by people to whom BS7671 meant not one jot until it became a money-spinner for them in 2005?  Part P is an insulting joke, has achieved the opposite to what is claimed for it, and sees both the honest electrician and Joe Public ripped-off.
