IET-BCA Guidance for Local Building Control Bodies: Electrical Installation Qualifications and Competence (within England and Wales)

The purpose of this new peer reviewed Guidance document is to outline the skills and competences required for an individual to carry out electrical installation work within dwellings in England and Wales.  Specifically work that falls under the remit of Part P of the Building Regulations and referred to in Approved Document P.

An individual’s competence level or skills are afforded a risk rating, explanation and action outcome within the Guidance document. These may then be used to calculate if any additional work may need to be taken into account by a local Building Control Body (BCB).

Within the Guidance document:

  • The level of recognised competence is specific to the level an individual has reached, having been assessed against national guidelines and/or professional criteria. 
  • The competence rating is applied to reflect a recognised level an individual has reached within the industry including their experience and qualifications.
