This popular guide focuses on common misconceptions in the application of the IET Wiring Regulations. It explains in clear language those parts of the regulations that most need simplifying, outlining the correct procedures to follow and those to avoid. Emphasis has been placed on areas where confusion and misinterpretation are common, such as earthing and bonding, circuit design and protection, and in particular the increased use of RCDs.With the coverage carefully matched to the syllabus of the City and Guilds Certificate in the Requirements for Electrical Installations (2382-12 and 2382-15) and containing sample exam questions and answers, this book is also an ideal revision guide.

This book discusses the requirements of BS 7671: 2008, also known as the IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition, published during January 2008. The aim of the guide is to provide an explanation of the theory and reasons behind the Regulations, their meaning and the intent of their drafting. The book provides advice and guidance, demystifying the ‘requirements’ wherever possible. Practical and original solutions have been provided, which are often not found in other industry guidance. The guide is a valuable resource for all users of BS 7671 including apprentices, electricians who perhaps want to ‘dig a bit deeper’ into the background of the Regulations, together with electrical technicians, installation engineers and design engineers. Most individuals who have any involvement with BS 7671 will find the book of considerable help and benefit in their everyday work. To derive use and benefit from the book it is assumed that readers have knowledge of electrical installation engineering to a basic level. However, ‘defined scope’ installers and those at similar levels will also gain from working through the book thanks to its clear diagrams. Given these prerequisites, the book can be used as a learning text for the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations as long as readers have a copy of the Standard itself. Indeed, a copy of BS 7671: 2008 is required as a reference document when using this book, and readers should at least familiarize themselves with the terminology and definitions used in the basic Standard. Guide to the Wiring Regulations is intended to be read on a chapter-by-chapter basis by those involved at the level of designing and constructing installations. This is something that is not easy to achieve with books on this subject as accessing the basic Standard itself can be quite daunting and heavy going. xiv Preface A particular emphasis or expansion has been made to those subjects that are often confused by readers of BS 7671. In this respect the text does not wander off to discuss ancillary subjects; the text stays focused on providing an understanding of those concepts demanded of BS 7671 so that design and installation decisions can be made by readers. The book’s coverage is comprehensive, and all Parts of the Regulations have been addressed within the topic lead chapters. Design aspects have been included as they are integral to installations. Often, individuals or organizations consider themselves to be either pure designers or pure installers. However, even by the act of an ‘installer’ in selecting equipment that was unspecified by the designer, e.g. selecting cables or other equipment, an element of design is being carried out. The same concept is true of domestic installers who select ‘standard designs’ but perhaps feel that they do not design. These individuals are considered to be designers even where the design is not calculated for each installation. The adoption of a ‘standard design’ or a ‘standard cable size’ by the installer is in fact design by the installer. The book is arranged into topic lead chapters, at the heart of which are Chapters C (Circuitry) and D (Selection and Erection of Equipment). Although the titles of these chapters seem simple enough, they are comprehensive and encompass about 70% of the Regulations. Most requirements of the Regulations have been condensed and summarized using tables aided by clear, simple diagrams. Some tables seem quite long but they are still very condensed compared with the regulations that they summarize. As an example, the new Section 559 in BS 7671 includes 44 regulations, but these are summarized in a 15-row table. The nature of the Regulations is that they must state all facts. However, the repetition of the most basic information in the guide was not considered beneficial; for example, where the regulation is written in the following style: ‘cables shall be large enough for the anticipated current’ This type of regulation is either not expanded upon in the guide or it is explained as follows: ‘cables shall be 6 mm2 minimum’. The book includes five printed appendices and further appendices are available as downloads from the companion website. Appendices that have been included on the Companion Website were either considered to be non-essential for most readers, xv

This best-selling text has been revised to reflect the requirements of the 17th Edition of the IEEWiring Regulations (BS 7671: 2008). It includes essential information on the new rules applied to special installations or locations, such as bathrooms, swimming pool locations, camping/caravan sites, marinas, exhibition and show locations, solar photovoltaic power supply systems, and floor and ceiling heating systems, amongst others. It presents clear explanations on inspection, testing, certification and reporting, test instruments and test methods, as well as covering: electricity, the law, standards and codes of practice; assessment of general characteristics; protection against electric shock, thermal effects, overcurrent, undervoltage and overvoltage; isolation and switching; the common rules of equipment selection; switchgear, protective devices and other equipment; wiring systems (including the external influences on them and cable installation methods); protective conductors, earthing and protective bonding; supplies for safety services; the smaller installation, and; specialised installations, such as outdoor lighting, installations in churches, multi-occupancy blocks of flats. These topics are addressed with pertinent regulation numbers, and a useful appendix lists the relevant Standards. Background guidance and worked examples are provided where appropriate. Like the earlier editions of this text, this new edition will be a useful aid for designers, installers and verifiers of electrical installations, students of the industry wishing to gain better understanding of the many facets of electrical safety, and ‘duty holders’ as defined by the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.
