This final impact assessment sets out the proposed changes to Part P of the building regulations and provides an analysis of the associated costs and benefits.
The proposals aim to reduce the bureaucracy and cost burdens that Part P imposes on installers, building control bodies and consumers, without undermining the improvements to electrical safety, installer competence and the quality of electrical installation work arising from the introduction of Part P in 2005.
This impact assessment updates the consultation impact assessment which was a supporting document for Section 3 of the 2012 Building Regulations consultation.
