2) with docs whats the best way to go about H & S policy ?.....http://niceic.org.uk/inc/file-get.asp?FILE=hsepolicy.pdf&RURL=/en/contractor/section.asp||20
(print it, sign it, keep it.)

3) with the copy of approved doc p i have the copy thats got coming into effect 1 jan 2005 although it refers to bs7671 2001 ! is this ok ? can i just ammend the ref to bs7671 2008 ? as i cant find an updated copy and dont know if they do one...........
call your local LABC & ask!

4) with the memorandum of guidance on E.A.W regs..............the NICEIC should have sent this book to you already in your joining pack!
do i also need the E.A.W safe working practices ?.....................No,
you should already know how to work safely...........if you don't.............http://niceic.org.uk/inc/file-get.asp?FILE=BPG2_March07(sec).pdf&RURL=/en/contractor/section.asp||20



my kewtech kt61 has an insulation resistance test voltage of 500v fixed so cant do selv how do i get around this ?
have worked for reading borough council on rewires and cu upgrades and testing is ok.................buy a new tester!

Basically the assesor want's to see two examples of work (rewire, partial rewire, consumer unit change) & your completed certificates, also H&S policy, public liability insurance, tester calibration certificate, and most important of all.....he wants see if you know what your doing.......Good luck.

Hi Tony.

Give NICEIC or Elecsa a call before your assesment to make sure they will accept your testing eqiupment before shelling out your money.
