What’s in the 18th edition wiring regulations?

June 27, 2017 featured image

With 18th edition a year away, it’s time for electricians, technicians, and installers to take note.

The draft has been released for professionals and anyone with an interest to read and comment on but many of you simply don’t have the time to read through what is a massive document.

Luckily there are some really great resources already available and Logic4training is going to do its best to keep you up to speed with as many as we can.

For starters, there is #Project18, an exciting new campaign from the ECA which aims to raise awareness of the 18th edition wiring regulations.

They have produced some bite-sized videos addressing the potential impact of the publication of the new wiring regs.

UK standards for electrician training do not change that regularly; when they do, it’s a major event and all training provision must be updated.
