18th Edition What to Expect?

July 1st 2018 is the date when we will find out for sure what the new British Standard will include. In the mean time, here are some proposals which are being considered:

Clarity over where relevant utility services entering a building need not be connected to the protective equipotential bonding

Additional requirements for AC final circuits

Changes relating to devices for isolation and switching

Clarity in respect to regulations relating to wiring systems in escape routes

Potential amendments to the requirements relating to overvoltage and the selection and erection of Surge Protection Devices

Considerations on how an electrical installer can prevent the appearance of a dangerous touch voltage in the event of the loss of the main connection to earth

Potential for section relating to electrical installations in caravan / camping parks and similar locations to align with IEC 60364-708

Changes imposed by IEC 60364-722 - Supplies for electric vehicles
