On December 30, 2022, new legislation will come into effect in the UK that will regulate security and safety at private charge points across the UK. The first part of the smart charging regulations was introduced in June and focused on smart charging and managing demand on the grid. This Schedule 1 update contains information security requirements and physical tamper-proofing to ensure a safe charging experience for all EV drivers in the UK.

From December 30, all charge points sold in the UK must meet security requirements consistent with the existing cyber security standard ETSI EN 303 645. Charge points must also incorporate safety provisions, preventing the user from carrying out an operation that could risk the health or safety of themselves or another person.
