I don't think anyone will ever end up being prosecuted as a result of carrying out notifiable work without actually notifying. However, what Part P does do is gives an additional route to prosecution and strengthens any case if someone carries out DIY work which subsequently causes damage, injury or death.

Other than that, in the majority of cases, without actually stripping a house back to the bones, how is anyone ever going to tell that (non-notified) notifiable work has been carried out

All good while ago i researched part p and the only prosecutions wer eof people claiming to be "electricians" charging for work that was downright dangerous its only an issue for homeowners when they come to sell as they will need the documentation i know of one guy who is doing his own full rewire and not worrying about testing or notifying deciding instead to get it tested before selling

Don't even see how it would be an issue when selling your house , I've just bought a house and i know for a fact that it has had all kinds of work electrical work done in the last couple of years which hasn't been notified and there are no test certs either , the seller had no problems selling it to me .

This is the silly thing. They are trying to make out that you won't be able to sell without certs etc etc but hey, it is not a requirement to have a PIR done prior to selling. A thorough surveyor may pick up on things but let's be honest, they are not sparks so will not know line from neutral! Also, unless you pay for a full survey the damn surveyor rarely ventures int ot the house anyway!!

What do you reckon? about 70-80% of work done in domestic properties is falling underneath the Part P 'radar'? Probably not far off. Certs included in HIPS would have squared this away, but they missed an opportunity there

ITs like all regs, but i think regs will only get tighter in future.

The way they can tell is once someone is hurt they then have to prove that all work is certified, if they cant they get prosecuted. Nothing is ever done until its too late then they complain, "it wasnt my fault"
