NOTE: In England and Wales, the majority of electrical work has to be inspected and certified that it conforms to the requirements of the relevant section ("part P") of
the building regulations. This can be done by a building inspector (for a fee), or an appropriately trained and qualified
electrician can certify their own work. Such electricians are referred to as "Part P Certified".
(This requirement does not apply in Scotland.)
