Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke



PREFACE to Guide to the Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke:

This Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke book discusses the requirements of BS 7671: 2008, also known as the IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition, published during January 2008.

The aim of the guide is to provide an explanation of the theory and reasons behind the Regulations, their meaning and the intent of their drafting.

The Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke book provides advice and guidance, demystifying the ‘requirements’ wherever possible.

Practical and original solutions have been provided, which are often not found in other industry guidance.

The guide is a valuable resource for all users of BS 7671 including apprentices, electricians who perhaps want to ‘dig a bit deeper’ into the background of the Regulations, together with electrical technicians, installation engineers and design engineers.

Most individuals who have any involvement with BS 7671 will find the Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke book of considerable help and benefit in their everyday work.


To derive use and benefit from the Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke book it is assumed that readers have knowledge of electrical installation engineering to a basic level.

However, ‘defined scope’ installers and those at similar levels will also gain from working through the Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke book thanks to its clear diagrams.

Given these prerequisites, the Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke book can be used as a learning text for the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations as long as readers have a copy of the Standard itself.

Indeed, a copy of BS 7671: 2008 is required as a reference document when using this Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke book, and readers should at least familiarize themselves with the terminology and definitions used in the basic Standard.

Guide to the Wiring Regulations is intended to be read on a chapter-by-chapter basis by those involved at the level of designing and constructing installations.

This is something that is not easy to achieve with Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke books on this subject as accessing the basic Standard itself can be quite daunting and heavy going 

A particular emphasis or expansion has been made to those subjects that are often confused by readers of BS 7671.


In this respect the text does not wander off to discuss ancillary subjects; the text stays focused on providing an understanding of those concepts demanded of BS 7671 so that design and installation decisions can be made by readers.

The Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke book’s coverage is comprehensive, and all Parts of the Regulations have been addressed within the topic lead chapters.

Design aspects have been included as they are integral to installations. Often, individuals or organizations consider themselves to be either pure designers or pure installers.

However, even by the act of an ‘installer’ in selecting equipment that was unspecified by the designer, e.g. selecting cables or other equipment, an element of design is being carried out.

The same concept is true of domestic installers who select ‘standard designs’ but perhaps feel that they do not design.

These individuals are considered to be designers even where the design is not calculated for each installation.

The adoption of a ‘standard design’ or a ‘standard cable size’ by the installer is in fact design by the installer.

The Guide to the Wiring Regulations 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations by Darrell Locke book is arranged into topic lead chapters, at the heart of which are Chapters C (Circuitry) and D (Selection and Erection of Equipment).

Although the titles of these chapters seem simple enough, they are comprehensive and encompass about 70% of the Regulations.
