BS 7671: the 18th Edition report

With the 18th Edition to the Wiring Regulations not too far off (it’s due to publish 1st July 2018), Nicole Whitton looks at what is being discussed at committee level now and what changes are likely to be included in what will be BS 7671:2018.

As Leon Markwell discussed in his March 2016 blog post, four panels inform JPEL/64, the decision-making committee of BS 7671:

  • Panel A – covers verification and inspection and testing (Part 6 and Appendix 6 of BS 7671) plus any work relating to Parts 1, 2 and 3 of BS 7671.
  • Panel B – covers cable sizing and installation and related matters (some of Parts 4 and 5, Appendices 3 and 4 and some Part 7 items of BS 7671).
  • Panel C – covers earthing installations and related matters (some of Parts 4 and 5 and some Part 7 items of BS 7671).
  • Panel D – covers the remainder of Parts 4 and 5, some Part 7 items and some Appendices of BS 7671).
