Amendment one to the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations will shortly be published in 2020 and will be available from both the IET and BSI websites. It will be a free-to-view document, and contain Section 722 of BS 7671 only. It follows advances in technology enabling a more practical solution for electric vehicle charging installations.
The Electrical Academy are in parnership with ROLEC
The Electrical Academy has an exclusive partnership with Rolec. Which means that on passing your course through us you will be automatically eligible on becoming an approved registered installer and will appear on their approved national installers scheme.
With the growing demand on EV installations this could provide you with referrals for installation inquiries within your region and also allow you to draw down government funding for charging point installations.
Amendment to 18th Edition Deadline for Registered Electricians
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.
