The New Year is just around the corner and so are the new 18th Edition Wiring Regulations.

Introduced in July 2018, from January 1st they become mandatory and all electricians and trades people carrying out domestic electrical work will need to update their qualifications over the coming months to demonstrate an understanding of the new regulations and changes.

Who are the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations relevant to?

Existing electricians and other building services engineers whose jobs involve electrical work and who already hold the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations Amendment (AMD3) qualification.
