Electrical contractors can now pre-order their copy of the upcoming 18th Edition from NICEIC and ELECSA.
The 18th Edition will be available on July 2. Contractors who pre-order their copy will ensure they get the book when it first comes out.
The new standard is expected to retail at £95 when it launches. Contractors who pre-order their book early will receive a 10% discount.
“Once it launches, contractors will have a six month period to get up to speed with the changes,” commented NICEIC and ELECSA’s technical development manager, Darren Staniforth.
“From January 1 2019, it will then be a requirement that all electrical installations designed after this date comply with BS 7671:2018, 18th Edition (2018).
“Everyone involved in the electotechnical industry will need to be able to demonstrate a level of understanding and awareness of the changes.
“Therefore, many contractors will be keen to get a copy of the blue book as soon as it becomes available. By pre-ordering a copy now, they can ensure they get a copy as soon it comes out and have the maximum amount of time to make any necessary changes to the way they work.
“They can also make some great savings in the process.”
In addition to the book itself, there are also various bundle packages available, including the 18th Edition book plus NICEIC and ELECSA Site Guide.
