Don't think the 18th will be out for a few years yet, we have still got the 17th yellow , blue and brown copies to get through yet.

I think the next Amendment, No. 3, is likely to be the last under 17th Edition, because of latest BSI rules.

I might have this wrong, but I think the new "rules" limit the number of amendments before next full "issue". Not sure exactly which Standard this is in or whether it's one of the guidelines for drafting committees?

I must admit I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that there was a BS 0 - a) because there was a 'standard for standards' and b) because it was numbered zero - I guess it appealed to my sense of logic (maybe that's just me).

However we could all still be expected to do a new version of the 17h edition exam couldn't we?
