Although we do not want to live in an over-regulated world, it is be of great help to achieve our goal of safe electrical installations in the homes if the authorities put some regulations in place.

A first regulation would be to require that all electrical installations are build according to recognized standards.

A further regulation could be that all electrical installations have to be inspected before they are put into service and a further regulation would be to impose periodic inspections of the electrical installations.

It is obvious that this list can be extended, depending upon the local situation.
