Regulations explained - Electrical work 

What is Part P of the Building Regulations? 

Since 2005, all electrical work in dwellings in England and Wales, whether carried out professionally or as DIY, must meet the requirements of Part P of the Building Regulations. 
 
Part P is in place to keep you and your family as safe as possible from electrical hazards, and applies to new domestic properties, as well as any alterations or additions to electrical installations in existing properties, including full or partial rewires. 
 
By law, you as the homeowner or landlord must be able to prove that all electrical installation work on your property meets the requirements of Part P, or you 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. 

What electrical work is notifiable in England? 

Electrical work which requires notification differs between England and Wales. Additional changes were introduced to Part P in England in April 2013. This means that electrical work in a dwelling, or associated with its surroundings, is notifiable to a local building control body where it includes: 
 
circuit alteration or addition in a special location 
installation of one or more new circuits 
installation of a replacement consumer unit (fuse box) 
rewire of all circuits 
partial rewire 
new full electrical installation (new build) 
 
 
Many jobs in the home need to be notified to and approved by your Local Authority Building Control unless carried out by an installer who is registered with a Competent Person Scheme.
