17th Edition Amendment 2:2013 (BS7671:2008)

Over the summer the IET have been busy updating and amending BS7671.

These changes may not affect the majority of us but you should be aware of their existence.

Corrigendum June 2013

This corrigendum was issued to replace Section 710 Medical Locations in BS 7671:2008 (2011). This corrigendum aims to simplify this section for the reader and is restructured to technically align with CENELEC’S HD 60364-7-710 document.

Amendment 2:2013

Amendment 2 was issued on 1st August 2013. Any installations designed after the 31st July 2013 must comply with BS7671:2008 Amendment 2:2013.

Amendment 2 is limited to the introduction of Section 722 Electric Vehicle Charging Installations. This has caused minor changes to:
•Numbering system for Section 722
•Part 2 – definitions added relevant to Section 722
•Section 722 – This section solely applies to Electrical Vehicle Charging Installations. It covers general requirements for protection against electrical shock, socket outlets and connectors, external influences, isolation and switching and RCD protection.
