How is an emergency electrician regulated in the UK?

Emergency electricians in the UK are regulated by several regulatory bodies. The main two are the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC) and the Electrical Contractors' Association (ECA). These organisations regulate the services of electricians, ensuring they are adhering to the national safety standard, BS 7671 - the UK National Standard for electrical installation.

Electricians are also required to be Part P certified if they are to carry out any work on domestic properties. This is a certification in the Building Regulations for England and Wales, which specifically pertains to electrical safety in domestic properties. This ensures the work they carry out is safe and compliant with the building regulations.

Moreover, they must comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 that set out the responsibilities of employers and employees to ensure a safe working environment.

It's also recommended that electricians gain membership with trade associations like the The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the British Standards Institute (BSI). These bodies don't directly regulate electricians, but they do set standards and guidelines which are widely accepted within the industry. Membership with such organisations demonstrates the electrician's commitment to upholding high standards.
