So what is the 18th Edition?
The 18th edition refers to the latest British Standards of wiring regulations (BS:7671:2018) also know as wiring regs.
These are guidelines set out by the Institute of Engineering Technology (IET). They cover the maintenance of existing electronic appliances and the installation of new ones with alterations and additions to the original.
Who is the 18th Edition for?
The IET Wiring Regulations are for those working in the construction industry, which are concerned with the design, installation and maintenance of electric wiring in buildings.
This is for professional engineers, electricians, contractors, electric vehicle charger installers, solar panel installers, gas engineers, plumbers, as well as those studying a university degree in electrical engineering.
Non-compliance with these guidelines could result in great risk of wiring faults, which can damage reputation and image, and may even result in the loss of life or property.
