Building notice for electrical work

Since 1 January 2005, people carrying out electrical work in homes and gardens in England and Wales must follow the new building regulations rules on electrical work.

When submitting an application to us, you will need to prove that you employ a suitably qualified electrician.

If you do not get the necessary certificates, the electrical installation might not be safe. You will have no record of the work done and as a result you may have difficulty selling your home.

Guidance notes and privacy policy

Please read our building notice for electrical work guidance notes and our privacy policy before making an application.
