Project 18

Providing answers for the draft 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations

#Project18 is a member-focused initiative from the ECA which aims to raise awareness of the draft for public consultation (DPC) for the 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations to ensure that the interests of our members are represented effectively during the public consultation and beyond.

The IET Wiring Regulations – otherwise known as BS 7671 – are currently under full review, with a new 18th edition planned for the near future. These proposals include some major changes, including new requirements on energy efficiency, so it’s important the industry is up-to-speed on developments.

 So keep referring back to this page and check out #Project18 in social media.
