ELECSA for Householders

ELECSA operates competent person schemes on behalf of government to ensure that the contractors you employ are technically competent to carry the work you want.  We assess contractors across the building services sector including electrical (Part P), heating & hot water, solid fuel and oil.

We also assess contractors under the Green Deal and MCS schemes for homeowners looking to install energy efficient measures or renewable energy technologies.

Our mission is to maintain and promote the best industry practice that underlines the technical integrity of the work that our approved contractors carry out on behalf of their customers every day.  More than 75% of our contractors are small, independent contractors who form part of the backbone of the UK economy, so it is vital that they gain the confidence and trust of the UK’s 60 million householders who depend upon their quality workmanship.
