hirty nine electrotechnical manufacturers have now signed up to the EDA’s not-for-profit data pool, EDATA, to distribute their product information to wholesalers. The latest manufacturers

Clock ticks for electrical checks in private rented sector L


eading safety charity, Electrical Safety First, is reminding England’s private landlords of their new obligations around electrical safety in their properties.


The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020, require private


landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected and tested - by a qualified electrician - every five years. Landlords that fail to comply, or to undertake necessary repairs, could face fines of up to £30,000. Landlords will also have to provide a copy of the EICR to tenants and, if requested, to the local authority. The regulations officially came into force on 1 June 2020. But it is only at the beginning of this April that


they will apply to existing tenancies. (They were applied to new tenancies from the 1 of July, last year). Electrical Safety First has led the charge, throughout the UK, for mandatory, five yearly, electrical checks in the private rented sector (PRS). These became a legal requirement in Scotland in 2015 and in England from June 2020. The Welsh government has committed to introducing these checks in both the private and social rented sectors simultaneously.
