  1. BS7671 / osg / 2mill pli / EAWR / part P doc / calbration cert for meter(s) / complaints log / health & safety policy / log of certificate serial numbers issued.
  2. Any certificates that you have issued for the work you are being assessed on.
  3. Nothing ( so far as i know).
  4. Tools & steps.
  5. All that you have used on the work you are being assessed on (make sure they are calbrated)
  6. Forms / note pad / pen / clipboard.
  7. You are asked how you think you've done, then are told that
  • you need a re-visit
  • you are ok but can only be recommended for defined scope
  • you will be recommended for full scope approval.

sparkyork

is this for domestic installer??

1 wot docs do i need and where can i get them from

health and safety policy (nic site)
approved part p (google and print is what i did.
HSE memorandum of electricity at work regulations (got mine from company called Seton (google it) they give you a free 30 day account. or whsmiths??)
BS 7671 (if going fully approved)
or on suite guide 17th
method for testing yout test equipment record sheet (have a look at nic site)
customer complaints procedure (nic site)

2 wot certs do i need

calibration certificates
minimum 2 million public liablilty
i got me 2360papers out just in case
eal dom installer cert (not sure if this is essential??)
17th edition or 16th (again i didnt have either, but will need to do them for next year)

3 wot do i need off labc

if you got a major job to show them then you should have a building compliance certificate of your local bc (in my case they werent able to produce one so they used my certs instead)
also your minor job depending on its location will also need labc maybe??


4 wot id do i need

i dont think you need any,although if yo had some little badges made with a nice little picture on it then it will look professional

5 wot test instruments do need for him to see

full set of installation test equipment all leads etc

6 wot does he bring with him

a suit and tie and black shoes and a clipboard, that he scarily scribbles in or ticks n stuff!

7 and finally wot happens at the end of it all

he'll tell you if youve passed or failed, he was only with me for 2 hours, partly cos he said he was off to play golf!
hell leave you with an a4 document explainint that your business is either fully complaint or not.
you then go out and get ****ed.
after 2 weeks if you pass you'll get some more stuff sent out including your nic certificate with company name on etc.
you then log onto nic building control site and create a username, you then wait for an activation code to come thtough (im at this stage now)

thats it me old fruit, take you time make sure you got it all and also id swat up on testing and expected results n what have you. and also swat up on buidling regs youll get some questions on min depth of notches etc and where you drill joists etc

to add as well if your taking him to a bulding site then clearly boots and vest is gonna be sensible as will descent set of test ladders!
