The IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671 are the UK standard to which all industrial and domestic wiring must conform. The 17th edition IEE Wiring Regulations has many changes in order to comply with European documents.
The IEE Wiring Regulations are produced by the IET, fully known as the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
The 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations (BS7671) became effective on 1st July 2008. Since then all commercial, domestic and industrial wiring installations must be designed to the specification laid out in BS7671: 2008 this Edition takes over from the 16th Edition which came into force in 1991.
All designs after July 1st 2008 have to be to the new standard and installed and certified to the 17th edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations.
Anyone involved in the design and installation of electrical installations or inspection and testing of electrical installations will need a sound working knowledge of the 17th edition wiring regulations.
