NAPIT responds to call for rethink of Third Party Certification Scheme

In response to the recent call for a rethink over Third Party Certification, David Cowburn, managing director of NAPIT Registration, said, ‘The introduction of Third Party Certification effectively recognises that electricians can do the work of Building Control. It is important to stress that it is not a new approach but an adjustment on who can carry out the check.

‘Done properly, it in no way weakens Part P or undermines registered installers’ work. If anything it complements the work of competent, registered electricians, providing greater levels of supervision to those who chose to carry out electrical work themselves and gives us an opportunity to communicate with them about the disadvantages of the approach and the additional benefits that would accrue if they did choose to employ registered installers.’
