The Decent Homes standard was subject to consultation in 2011 by both Government and the social housing regulator. Under this standard, a home is required to be free from a category 1 hazard as defined by the Housing and Health Safety Rating System, which includes consideration of electrical safety. There are no current plans to review the Decent Homes standard.
