Seems like I have just forked out for 17th Edition books and a course and exam...

17th Edition I did it as soon as it was out ...

This ammendment can wait........... just getting a BIT pee'd off forking out for books, courseS and exams to line someones else's pockets.

STOP MOVING THE GOAL POSTS ITS JUST OHMS LAW AT THE END OF THE DAY.

No one is forcing anyone to buy complete new editions of the wiring regs, nor go on further courses etc.

There is no legal requirement for you to spend any further monies.
Part P came in in Jan 2005, yet I have never joined a scam.
I did the 16th and have yet to do the 17th, but there really isn't a need to do so if you adequately familiarise yourself with the requirements.

There is no law which states that Thou Shalt Take The Latest Course and Pass The Exam, unless of course, it is a term of your Part P scam contract........

Do yourselves a bit fat favour and subscribe to the free - yes - FREE 'Wiring Matters' magazine published by the IET and delivered straight to your door.
All of these updates are fully explained therein. You might wonder at the absurdity of some of them, but it'll cost you nothing to do so.
And don't forget - amendments to the Red Book can be downloaded from this site and printed off for free.

So what's the beef?

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

If this amendment is adopted in it's present form it will be a new edition I think, owing to the volume of the content.

They even show you the nice green cover Lol.

A new book comes out every 2-3 years, It does make you wonder why things change so much and why they didn't release it in earlier editions because you see regulation numbers marked up in the book reserved for future use. That makes you think that they got an idea whats going in there. no there don't need to be so many editions and sometimes they just change the wording like direct contact and indirect contact to basic protection and fault protection. what was the point in doing this? and also removing a whole zone in bathrooms? it does seem that they just want to make money on new books and courses. but its up to you if you want to do them. I know it costs alot of money. so thats another £70 for the OSG and BS7671. I find now with the new books just fall apart now in no time the old books are so much stronger.

The IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671:2008) takes account of the technical intent of CENELEC Harmonization Documents which in turn are usually based on IEC standards. A lot of progress on international standards work in IEC and CENELEC has been made since the publication of BS 7671:2008, requiring both structural changes to the British Standard and also significant technical advances to be implemented. This is the reason for amendment number 1.

It's great to see that they keep things up to date, but why is BS7671 one of the only standards that we cannot download online off BSOL? the subscription is huge for this and they still want 70 notes for a book?
