    Hi there, I am a fully qualified spark and I work for a big company and have been asked to issue a periodic inspection on a property. I can test as it is part of my job but I wanted to know whether you need to be registered to issue a certificate? Or do you just have to be 'competant'?

    AFAIK you need to be competent. It is suggested you need C&G 2391, but even if you have that with no experience you wouldn't be considered competent.

    You need to have sufficient technical knowledge and experience of the type of installation you are inspecting and testing.

    But I presume you have access to a copy of and are familiar with Guidance Note 3?

    That being the case, the only other thing is to ensure that you have sufficient professional indemnity insurance to cover this work as you will be offering a professional opinion.
