On-Site Guide (IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition 2018)
The On-Site Guide provides practical information on applying the requirements of BS 7671. The handy A5, spiral bound book is easy to take out on the job and reference as needed.
This book is vital for all involved in the electrical industry, including designers, installers, and those involved in testing and inspection of electrical installations.
BS 7671:2018 Requirements for Electrical Installations will be issued on 2nd July 2018 and is intended to come into effect on 1st January 2019.
Installations designed after 31st December 2018 will have to comply with BS 7671:2018.
Changes In The 18th Edition
Significant changes include: the requirement for a ‘switching device’ to be implemented in the installation of renewable energy storage systems, recommendations for Arc Fault Detection Devices (AFDDs) in AC final circuits, a change to the requirement for the methods of supporting wiring systems within buildings against their premature collapse in the event of a fire, and requirements for devices for protection against overvoltage and a new appendix focusing on energy efficiency.
Changes have also been made to the requirements for electric vehicle charging installations with PME supplies (the most common form of earthing in new installations) as well as new guidance for the design and erection of electrical installations that have local production and storage of energy for optimising efficiency. Mark Coles, Head of Technical Regulations at the IET, said: “The IET is the authority for electrical installation in the UK and ensures that JPEL/64, the national Wiring Regulations committee carefully considers all necessary updates to the Regulations to ensure they best meet the needs of the industry.
The Regulations apply to the design, erection and verification of electrical installations, also additions and alterations to existing installations. Existing installations that have been installed in accordance with earlier editions of the Regulations may not comply with this edition in every respect. This does not necessarily mean that they are unsafe for continued use or require upgrading.

Post-Covid service restructure
During the current situation surrounding the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, logistics from every company are under immense pressure to deliver goods on time so we have taken the decision to temporarily limit our services
rather than let our customers down. We hope you will understand our position on this and we apologize unreservedly for the inconvenience we know it will cause.
Please note that ALL orders placed before 2:00pm are shipped same-day (unless additional services are required).
The stated transport times above have some scope for adjustment built-in for the Covid-19 situation. Carriers themselves also have their own extended workload and limitations at this time which are beyond our control.
Orders requiring calibrationWhilst we take the greatest care to get all orders dispatched and delivered to you in the stated time frame, orders received PM and requiring
calibration may on occasion miss dispatch that day, according to the complexity of the calibration. Be assured they will ship on the next dispatch
this in most cases should not add more than 24 hours to your delivery.
Bank/Public HolidaysPredicted delivery times are based on regular trading days Monday to Friday. Public holidays, bank holidays and weekends are outside the usual scope
of our dispatch and subject to activities/holidays of our carriers and therefore may incur additional days lead time to your order.
