Buiding Regulations Part P Notifiable Job

How to notify work
All notifiable work must be notified using one of the two routes recognised by the government:
Route 1: Direct notification through Local Authority Building Control
The homeowner must contact Building Control directly to ensure that a Building Control Officer visits the installation and issues a compliance certificate. The cost for this can vary depending on area. 
Route 2: Self-certification through a recognised scheme such as ELECSA
Firms registered with the ELECSA Part P scheme can self-certify all notifiable work themselves via the ELECSA .
Who needs to be notified?
It is a legal requirement that each notifiable installation carried out by a registered contractor needs to be notified
to three separate bodies:
• The relevant self-certifying scheme – done by you
• The relevant Local Authority – done by ELECSA
• The householder – done by ELECSA
