Building Regulations have been around for many years and are concerned to ensure the health and safety of people in and around buildings by providing functional requirements for building design and construction.
On 1 January 2005, part P of the building regulations came into force.
What work is covered by Part P?
The Regulations apply to all fixed electrical installation work in dwellings. Fixed electrical installations include all the fixed electrical cables or fixed electrical equipment (such as a permanently connected electrical cooker) located on the consumer’s side of the electrical meter. These do not include portable or transportable electrical appliances
