Electrical installations BS 7671/Part P

Electrical contractors can now achieve the Kitemark through meeting BS 7671:2008 +A1:2011 requirements for Electrical Installations.

BSI offers an integrated certification service for electrical installation work leading to issue of a Kitemark Licence which, where applicable, will also confirm the business as a 'Competent Person' under the Government legislation requirements brought about by the introduction of Part P of the Building Regulations of England and Wales.

The Kitemark is also available to those electrical contractors who do not carry out work in 'dwellings' and are therefore not affected by Part P.

Once achieved, the Kitemark serves as an enhanced marketing tool, by demonstrating the contractor's ongoing commitment to quality and safety, instilling confidence in customers and specifiers.

The electrical contracting business will be assessed by BSI regarding their competence in design, construction, inspection and test, and certification of installations to BS 7671 and relevant parts of the Building Regulations as they apply to the installation. The assessment will also look at non-technical criteria such as relevant insurances, Health and Safety matters and generally how the business is conducted from a quality of conforming product aspect.
