Since 2005, all electrical work in dwellings in England and Wales whether carried out professionally or as DIY, and whether or not the work is notifiable to a building control body, must meet the requirements of Part P of the Building Regulations.


Compliance with Part P is intended to keep you and your family as safe as possible from electrical hazards.


The requirements of Part P apply to new dwellings and to any alterations or additions to the electrical installations of existing dwellings, including full or partial rewires.


Part P states that anyone carrying out electrical work in a dwelling must ensure that reasonable provision has been made in the design and installation of the electrical installations in order to protect any persons who might use, maintain or alter the electrical installation of that dwelling from fire and injury, including electric shock.


By law, the homeowner or landlord must be able to prove that all electrical installation work meets Part P, or they will be committing a criminal offence.


Local authorities have the power to make homeowners or landlords remove or alter any work that does not meet the requirements of the Building Regulations.


Electrical safety requirements for dwellings are set out in Part P of the Building Regulations.
