    hi folks,

    Have recently started out as a self employed electrician in Scotland here and at the moment am not with Select or NICEIC (hoping to join next year).

    Question is, do I need certain qualifications to work on commercial properties? From my understanding I realise that I cannot do EICRs for commercial properties as I'm not with one of the above groups, but does this stop me from doing other work? For example, replacing lights in a commercial property? Another job I have is for a company that has two temporary labs they have wired up and would like me to hook up/ test.

    As far as I'm led to believe, as long as I'm an electrician (17th ed) and comply with the regs then all should be OK??

    Thanks

    Well you do need public liability insurance. You can do commercial work if you are suitably qualified you dont need to be a member of a scheme. If you do domestic you do need to be a member. If doing EICR you need personal indemnity insurance for £250,000

    No, nothing like that. One of the businesses is oil and gas related and the other is a shop

    Yeah, I've had my public liability insurance since I've started. Maybe England is different but in Scotland you don't need to be a member of a scheme to do work in domestic properties (unless it's a new build or extension).
