Many of the changes in Amendment No. 3 of BS 7671:2008, The IET Wiring Regulations, are reflected in this essential guide to the Building Regulations. These are expected to include (but are not limited to):

  • Consumer units (to come into effect January 2016)
  • Circuit-breakers used as functional switches

Ensure that your work meets the new standards and improves your safety and that of homeowners by following the new guidance.
