Work we undertake

Domestic

Our team are fully qualified to undertake a full range of domestic installations, all covered by a NICEIC Insurance backed warranty and on completion we will supply the relevant NICEIC test certificate.

According to Government statistics, each year on average 10 people die and about 750 are seriously injured in accidents involving unsafe electrical installations in the home.

From 1st January 2005 all electrical work in dwellings in England and Wales need to comply with Part P requirements and must be carried out by persons who are competent to do the work. Charles Electrical Consultants are fully qualified to do this - we are the professionals you can trust.

All domestic work is covered by an insurance backed NICEIC warranty. This means that:

  • The installation is covered for six years
  • You are covered under the NICEIC complaint procedure
  • Our work is assessed annually by NICIEC to confirm that our work continues to meet the highest standards.
  • If you have any questions about this cover, please call us, or if you prefer, you can phone NICIEC directly on 0870 013 0382

About the Domestic Installation Certificate

The Domestic Installation Certificate is intended only for a single dwelling (house or individual flat). It confirms that the electrical installation work, to which it relates, has been carried out in accordance with British Standard BS 7671.

Domestic Installation Certificates are issued for:

  • New electrical installations
  • Alteration or addition to existing installations where new circuits are installed
  • Domestic or commercial properties
  • Can only be issued by an Approved Contractor

Commercial and Industrial

Over time all electrical installations will deteriorate. Legislation requires that all electrical installations are maintained in a safe condition and therefore must be periodically inspected and tested to ensure compliance with BS 7671.

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 which incorporates The Management of Health and Safety at Work regulations 1999, a statutory legal duty is placed on all Employers to ensure that employees and all others are not subjected to risks to their health and safety. In particular, The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires those in control of part or all of an electrical system to ensure that the system is safe to use and it is maintained in a safe condition.

As well as installing new or upgrading existing installations our experienced team can undertake electrical inspections, testing & certification.

It is now a criminal offence if letting agents and landlords do not comply with Part P building regulations. This means that any unqualified electrician must submit plans to a building control body before commencing work. This includes repairs, replacement, extra power or lighting points any any alterations to specialist locations such as bathrooms, kitchens and outdoors.
