Does my electrician need a national inspection certificate?
I work in Facilities Management looking after a commercial building and I am getting an electrician in to do some work. There is a large room and all of the lights are switched on and off by one swith at the back of the room. He is going to put 4 rows of lights onto four switchs so they can be turned on and off individually.
he has Business insurance, Power Access Licence, EDSBCA,EFSA, EEFF, Level 3 certificate in requirments for electrical instillations and Level 3 certificate for inspection and testing equipment.
Does he need N.I.C ? if so is it absolutly a legal requirment? and if so what other options or routes (eg part p) are there to get round it?
Many thanks in advance

There is no need for a Part P cert for this work as its a commercial building. You should recive a Minor works certificate or Electrical instalation certificate with all the test results. Is there no emergency lighting?
