It is a requirement that from 1st January 2019 all electrical installations must adhere to 18th Edition Wiring Regulations (BS7671:2018) in regards to the design, installation, inspecting and testing on all new electrical works or updates to existing works.
A major overhaul to the new edition also referred to as BS7671:2018, was issued by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on 1st July 2018. Following that was a six-month transition period in which electrical installers could revise the changes and make amendments to their installations accordingly ready for the launch date 1st January 2019.
All electrical installers must have now adjusted their installation process to adhere to the new regulations and this course informs all learners of the 18th Edition regulation changes, ensures that they are confident applying them to their day-to-day electrical work and remain compliant in the electrical industry.
Becoming aware of these in-depth key changes and implementing these into everyday work is vital for any electrical engineer’s future business success.
