    Just wondering what the regulations were for how close a socket could be to a sink in the year 2000.

    The photo below is from a kitchen at a commercial office building that was likley built around the year 2000, the edge of the socket is only about 100mm-150mm away from the edge of the sink .

    No specific rule.

    It should be suitable for where it is placed, so you could say it should not be where it is liable to be dripped on or splashed

    Some people like sockets to be two metres away from taps so you can't readily touch both at the same time.
