Common Questions & Answers

If following the Electric Vehicle (EV) charging point installation, the Maximum Demand (MD) of the whole customer connection is less than 13.8 kVA, the DNO must be notified by email within one month of installation at If the MD exceeds 13.8 kVA, the Distribution Network Operator (DNO) must be contacted prior to connection.

The installation height requirements for an Electric Vehicle (EV) socket-outlet have been removed in BS7671:2018.

BS 7671:2018 states the EV socket-outlet must be installed within 0.75 to 1.2 metres from Finished Floor Level (FFL), with the top of displays between 1.2 and 1.4 metres from FFL.

Some smaller, lower capacity electric vehicles have a charger with a standard 13 A plug. This is called Mode 1 or Mode 2 charging. Whilst it is possible to plug this into a standard 13 A socket-outlet, BS 7671:2018+A1:2020 has requirements for a socket-outlet which is intended for Electric Vehicle (EV) to be of a particular type.

BS 7671:2018 requires each AC charging point to incorporate a socket-outlet complying with BS 1363-2, to be marked ‘EV’ on its rear.

BS 1363-2 requires EV marked socket-outlets used for charging electric vehicles to be subjected to additional testing requirements. For example, the socket and switch contacts being tested with an inductive load, as opposed to a resistive load for a normal 13 amp socket-outlet.

The requirements for RCD protection refer to the point itself as opposed to the final circuit supplying the equipment. However, there may be other requirements for the final circuit to be RCD protected such as for fault protection, if it were connected to a TT earthing arrangement. If this is the case, it is important to select the correct Type of RCD and to ensure selectivity upstream from the charging equipment.

BS 7671:2018 requires the charging point to be RCD protected by its own RCD of at least a Type A, having a residual operating current not exceeding 30 mA. It is likely that the RCD will be installed within the charging equipment, but this must be verified with the supplier of the charging equipment.
