The 16th Edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations has since 1992 been adopted as the British Standard (BS 7671) for electrical installation work. The regulations have since been superseded by the British Standard BS 7671 "Requirements for electrical installations" 17th Edition.
The 17th edition, released in January 2008, was made mandatory for all installations tested, designed or constructed after July 1, 2008. One of the more significant changes is (chapter 41) that 30 mA RCDs will be required for socket outlets that are for use by ordinary persons and are intended for general use. This improves the level of protection against electrical shock in the UK to a similar level to other EU countries. The 17th edition incorporates new sections relating to micro-generation and solar photovoltaic systems.
