    Can an electrician certify his own work ?

    I am currently refurbishing a property which is to be fully rewired.
    is the electrician allowed to issue a EICR . ? as he is effectively checking his own work,
    or does this have to be certified by an independent qualified electrician. ?

    thanks

        Is he registered with a competent persons scheme? An EICR is a report on the existing installation. If your electrician is rewiring then you will require an EIC
