Pre-order 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations for electrical installations

RS Components has announced it is to stock the upcoming 18th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations –Requirements for Electrical Installations – published by the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology). Available for pre-order, RS will have the IET publication in stock on the expected launch date of 2 July 2018.

The IET Wiring Regulations, also known as BS 7671, is the UK standard for electrical installation, covering areas such as verification, inspection, testing, cable sizing, earthing and installation. This latest edition of the regulations should be of interest to all those concerned with the design, installation and maintenance of electrical wiring in buildings, including professionals such as electricians, electrical contractors and maintenance technicians, as well as academic institutions.

To maintain and update the existing wiring regulations, the IET works closely with two major standard setting bodies: the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and CENELEC (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization). The 18th Edition Regulations are expected to include changes in certain areas including: protection against transient overvoltage; protection against fire; extending the scope of Section 753 to also apply to the area of embedded heating systems; and a new appendix on energy efficiency.

To coincide with the launch, RS is gearing up with a wide range of new products that will comply with the regulations including: VDE screwdrivers from suppliers such as Wera, as well as RS Pro tools; digital multimeters from leading makers such as FLIR; and insulation testers and RCD (Residual Current Device) protection devices from RS Pro and vendors such as Meggar.

In addition, RS will have label printer products from suppliers including Brother and DYMO, which can enable the fast production of safety signage in a variety of materials and colours, thereby helping electrical installers to comply with the latest regulations.

The 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations is now available for pre-order from RS.
