The Electric Vehicle Consumer Code for Home Chargepoints (referred to as “EVCC” and “the Code”), sets the standards consumers can expect when purchasing an Electric Vehicle (EV) chargepoint from a member of the Code. These standards ensure consumers can be confident when making a purchasing decision, knowing that their chosen installer must comply fully with the Code from the way in which they advertise themselves, to the way in which they handle a complaint if things go wrong. The Code applies to EV chargepoints installed in domestic properties throughout the UK.
By becoming a Code member you can ensure your business stands out from the crowd!
Code members are businesses who supply and/or install domestic EV chargepoints. The Code sets out the standards members are expected to maintain, whether acting on their own or as a sub-contractor.
As well as a great set of Membership Benefits , the Code gives you the tools to offer your consumers the highest standards of consumer protection, giving them confidence when deciding who to contract with.
By choosing a Code member, you can expect to receive a high quality and fair service, and a product that is suitable for you and your lifestyle. Plus you get the peace of mind that if something goes wrong, we will be here to help.
Before making a purchase, you should check out the Consumer section of our website and make sure your chosen installer is a member of the Code.

If you are able to plug in at home, you’ll know that home charging is one of the best things about switching to an electric car. No more queuing at petrol or diesel pumps, and no need to defrost your car on a cold morning. Home charging doesn’t just reward the driver either. Charging an electric vehicle using the greenest energy can make your driving much less carbon intensive and ‘pay back’ the carbon emitted in its manufacture so much faster...
