What’s the difference between LtP and self-certification schemes?


Electricians are obliged to inspect, test and certify the electrical safety of wiring systems that they install, repair or alter. This process is sometimes referred to as self-certification. The obligation to carry out (initial, periodic and minor works) certification of electrical systems is based upon the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and the BS7671 Wiring Requirements for Electrical Installations.
