The updated BS7671: 2008, IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition came into force on 1 July to bring the UK in line with European standards. All sites must now be tested to the new Standard, and many more deviations will subsequently be reported.
Said MD, Mark Blanchfield: “There are many responsibility-holders out there who need a refresh on electrical safety facts, and still a great number of organisations that need to bring their sites into a compliant state. This simple guide has been written as a useful starting point for those who need to understand the facts of electrical safety.”
The guide covers the essential facts of portable appliance testing (PAT) and periodic fixed-wire testing, and features a checklist for choosing an electrical safety testing supplier, as well as a reading list that contains the relevant legislation, and useful documents from the HSE and IET.
