Amended wiring regulations made clear

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (the IET, formerly the IEE), has released the On-Site Guide to aid the electrical industry’s understanding of the amended IET Wiring Regulations 17th Edition, BS 7671:2008 incorporating Amendment No.1, 2011.

Geoff Cronshaw, Chief Electrical Engineer at the IET

The On-Site Guide is one of a number of publications developed by the IET to provide guidance on certain aspects of the amended Wiring Regulations which were jointly published by the IET and the British Standards Institution (BSI) in July.

Geoff Cronshaw, Chief Electrical Engineer at the IET (pictured) said: “All electrical installations designed after 31 December 2011 will need to comply with the amended Wiring Regulations. As the authority on the requirements for electrical installations, the IET has developed the On-Site Guide to give the industry further support in getting up to speed with the revised regulations. As the title suggests, this publication is ideal for practising electricians as a quick reference guide. We do however recommend that installers consult the On-Site Guide in conjunction with the amended Wiring Regulations, BS 7671:2008(2011), to ensure that electrical installations comply.”

The A5-sized booklet is suitable for all electrical installers, electrical contractors, installation designers and students in further education and professional training. It is designed to present the essential elements of the amended regulations in a convenient and easy to use format and avoids the need for detailed calculations.
