Electrician

If you are carrying out electrical installation work, the type of work you usually do will determine which schemes are relevant to you

Electrical work can fall under the Competent Person Scheme (CPS), which will allow you to self-certificate notifiable domestic electrical work under Part P of the Building Regulations for England and Wales.

Work within the commercial and industrial sectors, or outside of England and Wales, falls under the Electrical Assessment Specification (EAS). If the work you do relates to energy efficiency or renewable technologies, it could also fall under the Microgeneration (MCS) or Energy Efficiency Measures (EEM).

Identify the activities which are relevant to you in the table below to determine the corresponding schemes.
