BESCA has announced the scope of the Competent Person Scheme has been extended to cover notification of electrical works (Part P).
The aim of the scheme is to give members the flexibility to notify local building control of installed works that are compliant with Building Regulations.
With this extension, the scheme is closer to offering a full-service solution for members.
The addition of gas in 2015 will complete this, enabling members to notify for all their building services work solely through the Competent Person Scheme.
In addition to the extension of scope, BESCA is also offering all of its Part P-registered electricians automatic registration to the new Single Mark Electrical Register.
Promoted by all electrical Competent Person Scheme operators, the government and Electrical Safety First, the new register will provide the go-to resource for consumer looking to employ a registered electrician to carry out work.
BESCA technical manager Russell Mott said: “Our aim is to deliver a one-stop shop, making the process of self-certification as straightforward as possible.
“We are committed to delivering a convenient and effective scheme that provides members with value for money, as demonstrated by the extension of scope to include electrical works and the addition of new work-type descriptors to make the process of notification even more straightforward.”
