Electric oven connection

I'm about to buy a new built in electric oven (Stoves) and its rated a
13 amps. Can this be connected to a standard 13 A socket via a norma plug or does it have to be done in some other way ? If so how ? thanks for your help

If it doesn't/can't then it will need a dedicated circuit back from the consumer unit.
Either way, it will need an *accessible* isolator within 2m of the appliance. A 13A plug/socket is acceptable, but must be *accessible* not hidden behind the units/oven.

Not neccesarily. Many fixed appliances don't come with a plug fitted, even if they are rated at under 13A. It's only portable apliances that should have a plug fitted.

A 'reasonable distance' is the technical term nowadays, ideally within around 2m.

To add to what the others have said, why would you want to connect it to a socket?
Ovens are on for a fair amount of time, especially while warming up and thus will take a fair amount of the capacity of any circuit they are connected to. Kitchen socket circuits tend to be heavily loaded anyway with washing equipment, without adding another high current appliance.
Unless the circuit you are thinking of plugging it into is unusually lightly loaded you should do the job properly, with a suitable dedicated circuit. Make this a 30A circuit and there is provision for a whole electric cooker in the future.
