Building Regulations Electricians

Electrical installations in dwellings (England & Wales)

In the past an electrician’s main concern was mainly with the technical part of an electrical installation and in complying with the current edition of BS7671.

With the introduction of Part P of the Building Regulations most electrical works in dwellings should be carried out by a competent person and the relevant Notifications and Certificates must be issued to local Planning and Building control Authorities.

The Building Regulations electricians need to take into account include Approved Documents Parts A, B, C, E, F, L, M and P of the Building Regulations.

The scope of the Building Regulations for electricians to take into account is broadening as new government policies and legislation are introduced.  The environment, energy conservation and efficiency, fire safety and disabled access all feature in the planning and installation process and electricians need to be aware of these factors when carrying out installation work.
