About us

The Electrical Safety Roundtable is a leading industry forum, dedicated to providing:

  • innovative research and policy solutions to government and industry
  • expert, independent electrical and home safety guidance to consumers

It was founded in June 2012 by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) authorised registration body NAPIT in response to widespread concern over poor promotion of competent registered electricians and enforcement of Approved Document P of the Building Regulations.

Since that first meeting, a wide range of industry representatives have formally signed up to participate.

It is now a permanent organisation, governed by a dedicated Board of Directors chaired by Chris Bielby, Chair of the Gas Safety Trust.

The forum aims to meet three times a year in London to discuss challenges facing the sector and build consensus around potential solutions to improve electrical safety in the home.
