Wiring Regulations transition: 17th to 18th edition

The gradual transition from the 17th to the 18th edition of the Wiring Regulations for part-time electrical installation courses is currently underway.

The latest revision of the IET Wiring Regulations (BS 7671), 18th Edition, are due to be published in July 2018 with the regulations coming into full effect in January 2019.

A new addition to the 18th edition will be a focus on energy efficiency considerations as part of the electrical design process.

Changes are made regularly to the Wiring Regulations to keep qualified electricians up to date and reflect the latest developments and advances in technology to ensure protection against electric shock and fire. To find out more about the changes click here.

West Herts College will be offering the 18th Edition part-time for students to become fully qualified and up to date with the latest regulations.
