BS7671 IEE Wiring Regulations 18th Edition

by Steve on December 7, 2010

Unexpected New Edition?

There are some rumours going around that the IEE 17th edition of BS7671 will soon be superceeded by the IEE wiring regulations 18th edition. 

This is obviously of concern to those training and taking 17th edition courses now who will then need to take even more courses in the near future.

Not Yet

The first amendment green edition (renewable edition!) of the 17th is expected to be available in July 2011 and the proposed amendments will have taken about a year to put together, so I can’t imagine that there would be an 18th edition any time soon. 

The 16th edition was around for 17 years and there were many amendments, so it is very unlikely that we are due for a new edition after only 2 years.  This said, don’t rule out upgrading your qualifications as still further amendments and new technologies are added to our electrician’s portfolio.

Do you know better?
