Part P is a new part of the Building Regulations which has been introduced by government and affects all electrical work carried out in dwellings.

People carrying out electrical work in homes and gardens in England and Wales should follow the rules set out in Part P of the Building Regulations to ensure that they are complying with the law. These rules are designed to ensure that electrical work is safe.

Part P has been introduced in order to reduce the number of deaths, injuries and fires caused by faulty electrical installations and to make life harder for 'cowboys' to leave electrical installations in an unsafe condition.
