As a consumer why should you use an AESIF approved installer over any other installer ?

The law is changing !

All major building work, plumbing, electrical, joinery and security systems on property now have to carry relevant documentation and certification in order to prove the work has met with the relevant standards.

Furthermore, financial organisations providing mortgages and insurance on property will be also requiring certification that any works are completed to the relevant standards. The entrance automation industry is directly affected by these changes and is one of the reasons for AESIF's formation.

Companies trading in electrical gate automation are now required by the Electricity at Work Act 2001 to supply completion certification to all works undertaken including dates for transitional inspections. Such companies are also required to comply with the new law associated with the Building Regulations 2000 Part P - outlined below -

The Building Regulations 2000 Part P - "Electrical Safety in Dwellings" brings work on electrical installations in dwellings under Building Regulations control for the first time. All work must comply with IEE Wiring Regulations, where the majority of major works must be carried out by "registered installers" or else applications need to be filed and approved by the local County Council's Building Control Dept.

These regulations and Approved Document P published on 29th July 2004 came into effect on 1st January 2005.


The above new law aims to reduce the amount of deaths, serious injuries and fires in dwellings caused by electrical faults in homes each year. ONLY 50% of firms comply fully with BS7671 It is essential that you now use a registered installer -
