What do I need to know about the 18th Edition?


Well, firstly, what is the 18th edition? The 18th Edition of BS7671, the UK’s standard for electrical wiring installation, was released in 2018 and is now fully in force. It’s something that many thousands of British electricians will need to be aware of. Here at Able Skills, we help countless candidates gain familiarity with the layout, structure and application of the 18th edition regulations.

Generally, an accredited training course will need to be undertaken to demonstrate a full understanding of BS7671 - such as that provided here at Able Skills. This is something that several of the UK's registration bodies and many employers require. Ultimately, up to date BS7671 knowledge is needed for electrical work in the UK, whether employed or self-employed.


Who needs it?


Simply put...Every single person that is working as an electrician in the United Kingdom should have comprehensive knowledge of the most recent edition of BS7671. This is not a legal requirement, but as this standard is recognised as the most thorough and is published by the UK’s highest governing body in terms of electrical installation, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, it is seen as a mandatory resource.
