Are you ready to take on the Unbeatable DIY Challenge?
Play our Unbeatable DIY Challenge game to put your do-it-yourself skills to the test.
So how did you do in the bonus round?
Did you have a little trouble signing the Electrical Installation Certificate? Here’s why…
Sometimes it’s tempting to try a spot of ‘do it yourself’ in order to save money or get the job done quicker. But attempting to carry out certain electrical installation jobs for yourself is not only against the law, but could put you and others in danger.
To protect people from fire and electric shocks, fixed home electrical installation work like the jobs featured in our game must meet the requirements of Part P of the Building Regulations for England and Wales.
This means that homeowners and landlords need to be able to demonstrate that the work has been designed and installed properly by someone who knows exactly what they’re doing, that’s why using a registered electrician makes perfect sense.
