    Back in January, we had a rewire at our property.
    The electrician provided an electronic Domestic EIC in PDF format by email for the work. The electrician signed the certificate, and underneath "The inspection and testing reviewed by" box was signed by a QS from NAPIT that he subcontracted.
    The electrician claimed that the QS attended at "the end" which is probably why the Domestic EIC has been signed off by him.
    We've had a dispute with the electrician so he got his QS to withhold the Part P, details of which are in another thread.
    The electrician is claiming that he will get the QS to issue the Part P but the QS needs to visit again to re-test the installation.

    Is it normal practice for a QS to attend, inspect the installation, sign the Domestic EIC certificate but need to attend again at a later date?

    Thanks

    I do not think that NAPIT have a QS scheme. I believe that NAPIT does not believe in the (QS) qualifying supervisor system where one person is an assessor & then signs off the workforce work.

    QS is an invention of NICEIC.

    If the certificate has been issued, the work is complete - someone returning later would serve no purpose, as the certificate can't be issued until the installation is completed and tested.

    Multiple persons on a certificate would typically be used for larger installations where someone would design it, others would do the installation (and that could be a whole team of people which could contain installers, supervisors, etc), and someone would inspect and test the work to confirm it complies with the design. Rarely applicable to domestic installations.

    Notification for part P is the person going to the scheme provider's website and entering the address of the installation and a few other details. A few minutes at most, and would not involve visiting the site again, because as with the electrical certificate it's only done after the work is completed.

    There is also a 30 day time limit between the work being completed and the notification being done, so work in January should have been notified months ago.
