Part P of the Building Regulations:


In 2005 the Government introduced electrical safety rules into the Building Regulations for England and

Wales. Because of this, most fixed electrical installation work carried out in homes must, by law, meet the Regulations. Part P states that anyone carrying out electrical work in a home must make sure that the work

is designed and installed to protect people from fire and electric shock. Part P applies to newly-built homes

and to any changes made to existing installations, including any parts that have been rewired.



What electrical work is covered by this law?


Apart from some types of minor work, all electrical work must either be reported to the local authority

building control, or be carried out by an electrician or domestic installer who is registered with one of the Government approved scheme providers. If you use a registered installer, you can expect to have safe

electrical installation work done, as the work will meet the UK standard, BS7671 - Requirements for

Electrical Installations.
