Competent Person Schemes

For all building services installers to comply with Building Regulations.

ELECSA can support contractors working across different building services sectors to notify work under the Building Regulations. The advantages of being registered with us to do this are:

Registered installers save time because they do not have to notify the local authority in advance of the work - they just notify their work online with us and we issue a building compliance certificate to the customer as well as advise the relevant local authority that work has taken place.

Consumers benefit as building control charges will not be payable and you can offer a complete service to your customer.

The range of work that we can cover for Building Regulations notification include:

  • Electrical (for contractors only doing electrical work, please go to our Part P Scheme page)
  • Ventilation
  • Plumbing
  • Heating and Hot Water
  • Microgeneration

Existing registered contractors can benefit from reduced prices by combining scheme assessments. Applicants may also benefit by including this scheme with others such as Microgeneration (MCS)
