Does Your Stock Comply with UK Regulation Changes?
Electrical Regulations are constantly being updated and for any Electrical Contractor, this can be difficult to keep up with, but if you keep a stock of certain products, it can be easy to install a product that does not comply with the current Regulation changes.
Here are just 2 Examples:
- The Wiring Regulation Amendment 3 Regulation 421.1.201 of BSI7671 Regulation 421.1.201 (Protection against fire caused by electrical equipment), which is now in full effect from 1 January 2016, relates to the fire safety casings on consumer units, so be sure to check which unit your contractor is installing in your properties.
So if you have stock of consumer units, be sure to check that they now comply.
- The harmonized standard EN 60335 covers the safety of household electrical appliances with a maximum rated voltage of 250 V (for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances). Part Two advises of specific requirements for individual products and new amendments to EN 60335 came into force on September 1 2015, but unless every Electrical Contractor and Electrical Wholesaler is made aware of it, they risk being left with thousands of pounds’ worth of stock that is illegal…
The new amendment to EN 60335 is a small section called: ‘Safety of Household and Similar Electrical Appliances. It establishes that every Electric Radiator installed after 1 September 2015 MUST HAVE the following
- A specific power switch button
- An acoustic as well as visual signal for visual and hearing impaired people when switching the appliance on and off.
- A comprehensive instruction book / installation manual for every product.
With so many products coming to the UK from China and similar countries, where this rule does not apply, every Electrical Contractor needs to be aware of exactly what they specify, purchase and install in the UK from now on.
But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Every Intelli Heat thermodynamic radiant heat electric radiator complies with the new EN Standard amendment, with an audible sound on/off switch on every radiator, and has an English Instruction Manual.
So before you install any of your old stock, please be sure to check that everything in fully compliant with the new UK Regulations. If not, we can supply you with compliant radiators within 3 working days.
