Legislation

Part P explained

part p imageIn January 2005 an electrical safety law, Part P of the Building Regulations, was introduced by the Government to further enhance the protection of homeowners. Its aim was to help reduce the number of deaths, injuries and fires caused by faulty electrical installations and to make it harder for ‘cowboys’ to leave electrical installations in an unsafe condition.

As a result of this new law all electrical installation work in a home, garden, conservatory or outbuilding is subject to Part P Building Regulations.

Apart from some types of minor work (see Part P Factsheet) 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, like ourselves.
