NICEIC’s CEO Emma Clancy attended the House of Commons this month to put forward the case for retaining Part P of the building regulations.
The Government is currently reviewing Part P with a view to changing or amending the legislation which covers electrical work carried out around the home.
NICEIC believe Part P is crucial in ensuring the highest standards of electrical safety in dwellings in England and the regulation should be retained and reformed.
Emma was part of a panel of representatives from the construction industry who attended a select committee, chaired by various MPs. Together, the group urged the Government to think carefully about making any amendments which could compromise safety in the home.
A recent survey of NICEIC contractors revealed that 85% would prefer to see Part P amended rather than ended.
