Is it compulsory to install an RCCB in my home?



Yes, if you do not already have an Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker (ELCB) or Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) installed in your home. To enhance electrical safety in all households, all residential premises without a circuit breaker will be required to install an RCCB.


All homeowners will be given a grace period of two years, till 1 July 2025 to do so. HDB will be writing to the homeowners of 3-room and larger HDB flat types, completed in and before 1985 without an RCCB, to share more information on the assistance programme for the installation of RCCB.
