This Guide gives guidance on meeting the electrical installation requirements of the Building Regulations for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This Guide has been updated in line with BS 7671:2018, IET Wiring Regulations, 18th Edition, Approved Document P of England and of Wales and the Technical Handbooks (2017) of Scotland.
This Guide supports a range of qualifications which have been developed to meet the requirements for Qualified Supervisors (see Annex A).

Domestic circuit schedules that comply with BS 7671:2018 Requirements for Electrical Installations (IETWiring Regulations 18th Edition) are described. They are not necessarily the most cost-effective for any particular installation but have the advantage of being simple and generally applicable.

Approved Documents are intended to provide guidance for some of the more common building situations; however, there may well be alternative ways of achieving compliance with the requirements. Thus, there is no obligation to adopt any particular solution contained in an Approved Document if you prefer to meet the relevant requirement in some other way.
