For the busy electrical contractor who is faced with a shoestring budget and being out at work all day it can be a particularly testing task. But did you know there is a website available to all Part P registered businesses that will take the strain away?

It was created by all Government-approved electrical Competent Person Scheme Operators in England and Wales. All business listed on the site are permitted to display the RCPE logo and are registered to undertake work on domestic electrical installations and self-certify that their work complies with the Building Regulations.

‘The RCPE website does this and is the ideal place for registered electrical contractors to direct their customers.
