Electrical Installation Regulations

Electrical installations are subject to a comprehensive set of rules and regulations that business owners and electrical companies must adhere to. The two legal frameworks that govern the electrical installation industry are The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, and The Building Act 1984 & 2000. The former covers the design, construction, operation and maintenance of electrical systems, and the latter concerns building safety – things like structure, drainage, fire safety, ventilation and electrical safety.

Types of Electrical Work

Electrical work is a wide-ranging industry. Buildings around the world rely on all types of electrical installations and systems, and so electrical contractors are required to carry out a variety of works across different environments. Types of electrical work include:

  • Wiring and rewiring
  • Installations
  • Electrical testing
  • PAT testing
  • Fixed wire testing
  • Emergency lighting installation and testing
