New electrical checks and safety standards for Landlords

I have not read all the comments made on this article but the following may eleviate some concerns. The draft regulation requires a 5 yearly "inspection and test" of a rented property in compliance with the 18th edition wiring regulations. Chapter 65 of the 18th edition is titled "Periodic Inspection & Testing", so it is this chapter that needs to be complied with. Not the design and installation requirements of a new wiring system! Within chapter 65 section 651.2 Note 2: "Existing installations may have been designed and installed to conform to previous editions of BS7671, applicable at the time of their design and erection. This does not necessarily mean they are unsafe." So no need to rewire etc if you have an earlier deign to 18th edition. You will still be compliant with 18th editions as long as the wiring system is safe! See this video that discusses the changes between 17th and 18th editions. Go to count 15:16 where you can see this statement. Video: https://www.flameport.com/wiring_regulations/BS7671_18th_edition/bs7671_18th_changes_part6.cs4... Read More
