After conducting a survey and listening to feedback from our cardholders, the ECS has amended the deadline by which Registered Electricians with the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations must gain the 18th Edition. The following dates now apply:
Before 31 Dec 2019, Registered Electricians can renew their card and maintain their Registered Electrician status with either 17th Edition or 18th Edition.
From 01 January 2020, when Registered Electricians renew their card they must hold the 18th Edition. Without the 18th Edition, cardholders will revert back to a standard Installation or Maintenance Electrician card.
