Electrician Training at Able Skills

The 18th Edition Course has been a legal necessity for anyone carrying out electrical installations in 2019 and beyond. Being 6 months in, the latest wiring regulations have made quite an impact throughout the construction industry. Recent news has emerged stating how the 18th Edition Course is influencing the safety standards across markets such as surge protection, energy efficiency and many more.

Electrical safety expert  Bureau Veritas have recently detailed how these areas are looking to improve themselves. For example, surge protection looks set for a positive change in a new industry accredited risk assessment method which looks as if it will be introduced soon.

Michael Kenyon, Technical Manager at Bureau Veritas, stated:

“Electrical safety and compliance has always been an evolving process and over the last six months, the introduction of the 18th Edition regulations has ushered in a new era of best practice for surge protection, EV charging point installation and energy efficiency.

“Looking ahead, we expect energy efficiency to play a greater role in electrical standards , with Part 8 – which sets out guidance on lessening environmental impact, reducing energy losses through greater adoption of smart solutions, such as power factor correction. This marks a significant change as until now the wiring regulations have traditionally focused on safety alone.
