    Afternoon all .. My Son has just bought a property in Scotland... it needs a new Consumer Unit and minor work .. I know there is No Part P as such but He’s been told I can’t certify my work up there due to not being part of the Scottish approved Contractors scheme .. is this correct, do I need to join yet another Government scheme ? Your help would be appreciated.

    There is no need to notify building control up here. I would say just provide a certificate for the work carried out to the customer ( I hope he is paying you well!). Before I joined SELECT, which is the Scottish electrical contractors association, the local authority were happy with a certificate and an up to date grade card if I wired a new build.

    In answer to the last piece of advice ... Do I also send a copy of the EIC to the Local Authority instead of the usual Notification ??

    No, there is no requirement to notify anybody.

    Depending on the type of work and the type of property a building warrant might be required. If it is your son is responsible for obtaining this.
