It refers to Part P of the building regulations for England and Wales. Part P gives legally enforcible rules relating to electical safety in domestic premises. Since it's introduction in 2005, all electrical installation work in dwellings in England and Wales must comply with Part P of the building regulations.
It was introduced to help reduce the number of injuries, deaths and fires caused by faulty electrical installations and to make it more difficult for so called cowboy builders to leave electrical installations in an unsafe condition.
Needless to say, JMC Electrical Services are fully Part P accredited with NAPIT (see below). We are assessed annually and provide full certification with all electrical installation work carried out.
For more information about Part P and why it exists to protect the customer, please refer to the Electrical Safety First website.
