Hi All,

This is my first post and sorry if I am breaking any rules. My wife books an electrician to come in on Wednesday who was recommended to us, it was only to add some sockets in the living room, remove an old socket that was reminiscent of an EU plug (2 prongs) and move some light fittings.

My wife bought a class 1 light fitting not knowing we do not have an earth cable, we have informed the electrician of this which he said will be fine and will look at it when he comes.

I have had a look and I cant seem to find him on the registered list, and am now wary that he may not be able to self certify the work, or worse do the work and not be compliment with building regs.

I guess my questions are
1. Is any of the work we are getting done classified as notifiable work?
2. what would a registered electrician give us upon completion?
3. Are there any questions I should ask him?
