18th Edition Electrical Wiring Regulations

SouthTest always needs to have an eye on the latest changes to electrical regulations. It has been known for a while that the 18th Edition was due to change this year. To date all of our Electricains are now fully quailified to 18th Edition.

Changes to electrical regulations isn’t unusual. Updates tend to happen every few years and they usually have the effect of tightening up on some of the existing regulations as well as introducing some new ones.

As expected the 18th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations (BS 7671:2018) was published earlier last year. What this means that all electrical work carried out in the UK must comply with these new regulations from January 2019. However this does not mean that work carried out previous to these changes is unsafe or needs redone, it just means that going forward all new electrical work must comply with the new rules.


If you are looking for an experienced electrical contractor you can trust to always work to current electrical regulations SouthTest would love to hear from you. Please call or emaill on 07999 33 69 33   info@SouthTest.co.uk
