Members will no doubt be well aware of the imminent publication of BS 7671:2018 Requirements for Electrical Installations (IET Wiring Regulations Eighteenth Edition) which is now expected to be available from 2nd July 2018.
The new standard can be used to design electrical installations from July 2018 however it does not actually come into effect until 1st January 2019.
Installations designed after 31st December 2018 must comply.
It should be noted that the technical assessment criteria for SELECT membership requires members to hold current editions of relevant publications applicable to the scope of their accreditation and therefore members should have a copy of BS 7671:2018 available for technical assessment purposes from 1st January 2019 and be familiar with its content.
Members can pre-order a copy of BS 7671:2018 at a member discounted price of £74.00 by contacting SELECT’s Technical Services Administration team on 0131 445 5577.
