hi mikey,
when i had my assessment with nic the assessor said that if i hadnt notified my jobs through building control then he would have had to mark me down as a non compliance, but he also said i wouldnt have failed the assessment because of it.
there is a procedure in place if you arent registered with a scheme and part of that process is to notify labc of any work you do up until the point you are registered.
only you can make the choice whether you go the labc route and i suppose it depends on your particular assessor as to how he sees and deals with the non compliance
hope this helps ;)

they will visit 2 properties, minor job and major job and you are quite right its a complete waste of money involving labc as you still have 30 days to notify through scheme provider once assessment has been passed :mad:

i have seen quite a few posts where people have not bothered with labc and still passed no problem but it was a chance i wsnt willing top take given the reassessment costs :eek:

best of luck with what you decide ;)

Its a tricky one this.

The assessors primary task is to ensure your work complies with BS7671, not whether you have notified the job or not, although Part P is referred to.

I did not have to pre notfiy. I had two jobs lined up, and was confident that i would pass.

These jobs were completed within 30 days of completion, and once the assessment was passed, i then notified them.

The NIC do have other requirements in addition to the minimum set out by the government, so if they say they must have been notified then so be it.

you are supposed to notify labc before any work commences. best speak to your labc first.

as jason says i cant see any problem notifying the jobs once you pass assessment but the procedure is until you are registered you must notify labc. not me that makes the rules though, wish it was and i was seeing some of that money :rolleyes:

This topic has confused me also, when the time comes im still torn between Elecsa and NIC.

Lets say i have my 2 jobs lined up ready for assesment..

Do i need to do anything before i start the jobs??
and do i need to do anything once completed.. (understanding it will need certyfing and poss notifying after)

When i had my assessment they were not bothered about whether the jobs were notified or not.

However if you decide to go this route you need be fairly confident you will pass, other than that, just notify via LABC.
 
the correct route until you are registered is to notify labc before undertaking any notifiable work. as you know all work in domestic dwellings needs building control certification. if you arent registered with a scheme and havent notified labc then when it comes to your assessment you will have skipped part of the process and it depends on how your chosen body decides to see that. i would personally notify labc until you are able to notify yourself then you cant be wrong ;)
