Notifiable WorkOne Goddons Electrical Services
From April 2013 electrical work in a dwelling, or associated with its surroundings, is notifiable to a local building control body where the work includes:
- the installation of a new circuit, whether at low voltage (typically 230 V) or extra-low voltage); or
- the replacement of a consumer unit (fusebox); or
- any alteration or addition to an existing circuit in a special location*, whether at low voltage (typically 230 V) or extra-low voltage
*A special location example is a room containing a bath or shower, swimming pool or a sauna heater.
An alteration or addition to an existing circuit in a room containing a bath or shower is notifiable only where carried out in the space surrounding a bath or shower.
An alteration or addition anywhere within a room containing a swimming pool or sauna heater is notifiable.
You must first check whether the work is notifiable. If it is then you must either;
- employ an electrician who is registered with one of the Government-approved scheme providers, or tell (‘notify’) your local-authority building-control about the installation work before work begins.
From April 2014 you will also be able to employ a non-registered electrical installer who has appointed a registered third party certifier to carry out the required inspection and testing of the work both during and on completion.
