Part P


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, satisfy the building regulations.

 

Part P states that anyone carrying out electrical installation work in a home must make sure that the work is designed and installed to protect people from fire and electric shocks. Part P applies to newly-built homes and to any changes made to existing installations, including any parts that have been rewired.

 

You can find full details on Part P on the Communities and Local Government website.

What Electrical Work Is Covered By This Law?

All electrical installation work in a home, garden, conservatory or outbuilding must satisfy the building regulations. 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 who is registered with one of the Government-approved scheme providers.

Who Is Responsible?

By law, all homeowners and landlords must be able to prove that all electrical installation work meets Part P, or they will be committing a criminal offence. Local authorities can make homeowners or landlords remove or alter any work that does not meet the building regulations.
