part p regs and works


Postby danfaller » Wed Apr 04, 2007 10:36 pm

I know this is a slightly pointless question, but if someone who is not self certified 'installs' an outside socket (for example) but it is not connected to the consumer unit, at that stage in the process would the work already carried out contravene part p regs?

If not, at what stage would it become a failure to comply? when it is actually wired in, or is simply the intention to wire in sufficient to be contravening the regs?

thanks for that. Finally, at what 'point' does an extension cable with a socket on the end come within the scope of part p?

I know its stretching things a bit, but for example does an 'extension cable' consisting of a waterproof socket with a 13amp plug at the other end of the cable come under part p? and what if the cable went through a hole in the wall, or if the housing was fixed and sealed to the outside wall?
