16 October 2019
The Draft for Public Comment (DPC) will consist of changes to Section 722 – Electric Vehicle Charging Installations
The DPC is open from 1st October until 30th November 2019
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is asking the electrical industry to comment on the content of Section 722 – Electrical Vehicle Charging Installations – as part of Amendment 1 of the IET Wiring Regulations. This follows the release of the Draft for Public Comment (DPC) for BS 7671:2018+A1:2020.
The amendment follows advances in technology enabling a more practical solution for Electric Vehicle Charging Installations. The amendment, which is due be published in early 2020, will be free to view on the IET and BSI websites, and will form part of a consolidated version of BS 7671 following the next major amendment, expected in 2022.
The DPC is available on BSI’s website and industry is invited to view the draft and submit comments by the deadline of 30th November 2019.
ECA invites Members to review the proposed amendment, which we view as a positive progression to aid in the installation of safe electric vehicle charging points: https://standardsdevelopment.bsigroup.com/projects/2019-00216
