It brings the electrical contracting industry in line with other trades such as gas fitting and maintenance. As a result, complying with Part P is something that you must do. Failure to meet the requirements of Part P is a criminal offence and local authorities have the power to enforce the removal or alteration of work that does not meet the necessary standards.
