18th Edition Coming Soon


The 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations – BS 7671:2018 18th Edition (2018) to give it it’s full name – is expected around July 2018.

The draft document is currently out for public consultation, and so it is still not yet clear what changes will be introduced. However, it is anticipated that Electrical Contractors will be given a transition period of 6 months to get up to speed with the changes that are brought in.

The NICEIC have produced a video discussing the new edition, which can be viewed here: http://www.niceic.com/contractor/essentials/events/the-wire/thewirejuly2017
