    The IEE Regulations are non-statutory but, if they are adhered to
    compliance with which one of the following statutory regulations is most
    likely?
    a) Electricity Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations 2002
    b) Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
    c) Cinematograph Regulations 1955
    d) The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

    B or D not clear in the book itself

    Look at the options and for it to be statutory it has to have been passed as a act of parliament.

    So you’ve narrowed it down to B or D, now ask yourself which one is more likely to be complied with purely by following the IEE wiring regulations?

    You have weeded it down to two options so which is most likely. Look at the requirements of each option.
    Edit, beaten to it:D

    No need to guess, just look at the note from the HSE.
    These sorts of questions, the answer’s nearly always in the Regs.

    The note states you are likely to achieve conformity with the electricity at work regs but the answer on the exam is marked as Health and safety at work, however electricity at work regs do fall under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974

    so only the Health and safety at work have been passed as an act by parliament and the EWR are a subsection

    Yes, the clue is in the name as in 3 end in “regulation” only ends in “act”.

    The electricity at work regulations deal exclusively with electricity.
    BS7671 relates to electricity.
    The health and safety at work regulations deal with a multitude of things.
    Will compliance with BS7671 prevent someone falling down a hole in a floor, stop a crane dropping something on your head, stop you getting run over by a dumper truck, etc?

    All health and Safety Regulations are ‘Statutory Instruments’.
    All 4 of the answers are statutory.

    3 of the options can be altered without a act of Parliment being passed making them non statutory. Only 1 can be altered by passing a act of parliment making it statutory.

    Now I'm confused as to the correct answer.
    Examples of statutory documents
    The statutory documents considered most applicable to electrical installations and/or the in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment include:

    1. The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (HASAWA)
    2. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
    3. The Electricity at Work Regulations (EWR) 1989
    4. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER)
