Hager's Technical and Training Manager, Paul Collins, comments on the 18th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations:

“With the new IET Wiring Regulations that came into force on (1st January), we understand many electrical contractors still do not feel ready for the mandatory changes. We’ve gathered feedback from across the industry and we continue to listen to electricians’ concerns regarding the changes and, not all of them feel fully prepared for operating within the new regulatory landscape. In particular, a major area of concern is surrounding issues on surge protection.

“Following a well-publicised six-month period which pre-empted the arrival of the 18th Edition, it is clear more still needs to be done throughout the sector to support electricians to successfully navigate the new regulations.”

Earlier this year, Hager launched its automated Chabot ‘Reg’ who has been busy answering thousands of questions and queries from the UK’s electrical community as it looks for guidance on important areas such as product specification and installation methods. So far, the most frequently asked questions look at surge protection, overload protection of devices, the selection of appropriate Residual Current Devices (RCDs) and the selection of devices incorporated within an assembly. Chat with him today!

“Any electrical professionals who feel they need more support, can access help and advice from Hager. Our online chatbot is an accessible source of easy-to-understand information, while our 18th Edition themed training courses held at our Telford HQ have already proven very popular in the run up to 1st January. We will continue running the courses throughout 2019.”

Hager Academy offers a number of training courses, accredited by City & Guilds, covering all the major changes in the 18th Edition. The short 18th Edition course offered, details crucial content to those in the electrical installation industry. Check-out our available courses here

In addition, Hager has created an 18th Edition Hub that acts as a source of information and guidance through the latest changes to the 18th Edition of the Wiring Regulations. The Hub includes the latest news and features on all the changes, how they will affect people in the industry and what can be done to prepare.
