18th Edition is Coming in 2018

It’s expected that the IET will release the 18th Edition of the wiring regulations late June 2018 and although details of the updates are still a little sketchy it would seem likely that the new regulations will see significant strengthening in the guidance regarding protection against over-voltages, fire protection, electric surface heating and even more emphasis on energy efficiency.

Whilst changes are inevitable and bring with them both challenges and opportunities for installers, it is not as if the current regulations haven't been updated and revised on a regular basis since being issued so at this time the general industry consensus is not to be overly concerned and to wait and see what actions will be required to meet the updated regulations when they are released.
