I am an electrician helping a mate out on a new extension with electics and a new board etc.
Its a bit of a P.J as I mainly do commercial stuff. I have done all my certs and done part P course and 17th.
I am not registered with any governing body as yet but in the process of getting my portfolio done ie: 5 jobs up front then register according to NICEIC, as so they can asses me from there.
I was told by my mate that Building Control said the place would have to be tested by an independent company after I had tested. Is this correct? The job has been notified to BC and as far as I am aware readings and compliance certs will need to be issued to BC on completion and they come round to check. This is not a problem as I can issue all the certs correctly. As I am not with a governing body yet, I don't have free range to sign off.
Can anyone give me official advice on how this process works as I have spoken to quite a few people and the variations seem to change along the way?
It would help me clear up any confusion on this and get the story straight once and for all.
Information passed on is always appreciated,
