BIP 2223:2018

On-site guide for BS 7671:2018

Status : Current   Published : June 2018


A regulations guidance document which should be used alongside BS 7671 Requirements for Electrical Installations. IET Wiring Regulations in relation to the application, design, erection and verification of electrical installations and alterations to existing installations.

This guidance tool aims to look at:

Protection against electric shock - Metallic pipes entering the building having an insulating section at their point of entry need not be connected to the protective equipotential bonding (Regulation 411.3.1.2).

Protection against thermal effects - A new Regulation has been introduced recommending the installation of arc fault detection devices (AFDDs) to mitigate the risk of fire in AC final circuits of a fixed installation due to the effects of arc fault currents.  

Protection against voltage disturbances and electromagnetic disturbances - Section 443, which deals with protection against overvoltages of atmospheric origin or due to switching, has been redrafted.

Selection and erection of wiring systems - gives requirements for the methods of support of wiring systems in escape routes, has been replaced by a new Regulation 521.10.202. This is a significant change. 

Protection, isolation, switching, control and monitoring - Completely revised to deal with general requirements for protection, isolation, switching, control and monitoring and with the requirements for selection and erection of the devices provided to fulfil such functions.
