NICEIC is urging all electrical contractors to contribute to the public consultation on the proposed changes to the 18th Edition of the wiring regulations.
The 18th edition of BS7671 IET Wiring Regulations is due out in July 2018. It will become the new national standard for all electrical installation work.
The British Standards Institute (BSI) has recently launched a Draft for Public Comment (DPC) whereby contractors can get an early opportunity to see the proposed changes. They also have the chance to comment on the proposals.
Alan Wells, Technical Standards Director at Certsure, said:
“An important stage in the development of any Standard is the Draft for Public Comment (DPC) period.
“It is essential that anyone who feels that they have something to contribute to the draft BS 7671 standard make full use the public comment period to comment on its provisions.
“All comments of the public, industry and other related parties are considered in detail by the Technical Committee and, if necessary, further drafting is undertaken.”

The closing date for comments is expected to be August 23rd, 2017.
