NICIEC is urging contractors and the wider industry to ensure they are fully prepared for Amendment 2 of BS 7671:2018, which, following a six-month transition period, comes into effect on 27 September.
“Amendment 2 introduces some sizeable changes,” says NICEIC’s Head of Technical Services, Paul Collins. “Designed to improve safety and push the industry forward, it is vital that those operating in the electrotechnical space are up to speed and ready to put the changes into practice.”
NICEIC has designed an expansive support package to help the industry navigate the changes and ensure a smooth transition.
The package includes a range of expert-led training courses covering everything electrical contractors need to know and a wide range of publications and guides.
In addition, NICEIC also offers a new and improved streamlined suite of Electrical Forms. Available in physical format via the NICEIC web-shop and in digital form via NICEIC Online and the NICEIC Cert mobile app, these forms are updated in line with Amendment 2 and are available now.
Furthermore, the 38,000 businesses certified by NICEIC also benefit from NICEIC’s highly regarded technical helpline and a bank of free and exclusive CPD Certified materials, including webinars and technical reference documents.
Paul continues: “To support the industry transition, we have developed a full and comprehensive package of class-leading training solutions, materials and tools.
“We have worked hard to cover all bases, ensuring that our offer delivers the tools contractors and industry truly need.
“If you operate in the electrotechnical space or in an associated industry, I urge you to make the most of these resources. Doing so will ensure that come 27 September, you are up to speed and ready to go.”
