In addition to the recently announced 2023 Corrigendum to BS 7671:2018 +A2, the IHEEM Electrical Technical Platform (ETP) are currently engaged in working through potential new work items for the next edition of BS 7671 which is anticipated to be published in early 2026.
Whilst this may seem to be a long time in the future, IHEEM who are represented at the JPEL committees by members of the ETP, are required to have all new work proposals submitted for discussion prior to the 3rd of November 2023 in order that it be considered for the next amendment.
The ETP are therefore looking to our membership for comments or practical issues which members believe should be addressed in the next amendment of BS 7671. Whilst IHEEM focuses on matters relating to Section 710 medical locations within BS 7671, it should be noted that the whole of the standard applies to the electrical installations we design, install or maintain.
We ask that initially you respond with any comments, queries or topics for consideration to the Chair of the ETP, via Clair Wilkins (Platform Secretary) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also intend to keep members informed in term of actions taken and progress made with the development of BS 7671.
Many thanks for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.
Paul Harris, Chair IHEEM ETP
