18th Edition Wiring Regulations
The 18th Edition Wiring Regulations became mandatory at the beginning of this year, and employers have been racing to ensure electricians are fully compliant.
A recent survey of electrical professionals showed many don’t yet fully understand the changes, with technical areas such as AFDDs and surge protection causing them special concern. DTL runs a series of courses in the new standard at its training centres across the UK as well as on customers’ own premises. Click here to find out more.
