    WTF Part P is a stuffin building regulation. Jeez what is our trade coming too?? The part P qualification, is something the scams have come up with to make money for them and the numerous training facilities they are allied to, imo.

    This is the trouble far to many people agree but nobody wants to do anything about it. It's a crime.

    Notifiable work (in England, slightly different in Wales, totally different rest of UK), extends to new circuits, CU replacements and work in a special location.

    So that's what you can't do, unless you line the pockets of your LBC with lots of cash :)

    Yep of course he can, but then he will not be complying, if he does some of the above without first informing his LBC, usually for a small fee.

    As @Pete999@Pete999 has pointed out, Part P is part of the building regulations. It applies to all works in a dwelling (and also some settings which share a supply meter with a dwelling) regardless of whether it is notifiable or not.

    The exams are merely a mechanism by which one can demonstrate your competence in terms of your ability to understand and comply with the requirements laid out in Part P.

    Providing you are competent enough to comply with the requirements of Part P you can do what ever you want as long as you comply with the notification requirements.
