The government recently launched a consultation on the back of recommendations set out by the Electrical Safety Working Group. In their report the Working Group recommends introducing five yearly mandatory electrical installation checks for private rented properties, and that other safety measures are encouraged as good practice.
This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 16 April 2018, so you will need to be quick if you wish to provide your views and comments.
The government would like to gather additional evidence on the recommendations and is inviting the public to comment on the consultation.
