is Part P?
From January 2005 electrical installation work in dwellings (houses
and flats) will become subject to a new Building Regulation - 'Part
P'. This will be enforced by Local Authorities. Failure to comply
would be a criminal offence.
legal requirement is simply stated: 'Fixed electrical installations
in dwellings shall be suitably designed, installed, inspected and
tested so as to provide reasonable protection against their being
the source of a fire or a cause of injury to persons.'
