    BS Amendment 3 is now published, and you will have to comply! James Hunt urges you to read on: The new colour for the cover of BS is yellow. The potentially life-saving changes included make this a vital update — much more so than Amendment 2. Amendment 3 has a significant number of quite major changes that electrical installers and contractors will now have to understand and follow in their working practices. Some of these changes affect manufacturers more than installers, but most are important to the latter. The key alterations include some definition changes, a change to protection, a reduction in earth loop impedance values, the addition of protective devices, wiring in escape routes, consumer unit enclosures to be made non-combustible to come into effect January and the inclusion of model inspection, testing certificates and reports. Amendment 3 is effective from January 1st There will be a six month transition period where electrical contractors can install to Amendment 2 or Amendment 3, after which it will be a requirement that all electrical installations designed and periodically tested will have to comply with the changes.

    The changes in Amendment 3 In more detail, the most important of these changes — as outlined by the IET - are as follows: Chapter 41 - Protection against Electric Shock. This has various changes in definitions, plus alterations for socket outlet RCD protection.

    In addition, RCD protection Regulation Note, though, that there are exceptions for socket outlets up to 20A for a specific labelled socket outlet, or where a documented risk assessment shows that RCD protection is not necessary.

    Also, the maximum earth fault loop impedances have been revised to take into account the Cmin factor. This is the minimum voltage factor to take account of voltage variations depending on time and place, changing of transformer taps and other considerations, says the IET.

    The maximum earth fault loop impedances provided in Tables Furthermore, the notes to the Tables have been changed in terms of the maximum permitted operating temperature.

    Looking at electrical testing, an important change in Amendment 3 is a reduction in all maximum earth loop impedance values Zs for protective devices again see Tables In addition, RCD protection Regulation Note, though, that there are exceptions for socket outlets up to 20A for a specific labelled socket outlet, or where a documented risk assessment shows that RCD protection is not necessary.

    The maximum earth fault loop impedances provided in Tables Furthermore, the notes to the Tables have been changed in terms of the maximum permitted operating temperature. Looking at electrical testing, an important change in Amendment 3 is a reduction in all maximum earth loop impedance values Zs for protective devices again see Tables The existing values are based on a supply voltage of V, but as we all know, this voltage can vary significantly.

    Cmin accommodates such voltage variations, and has a value of 0. For testing, minimum voltage checks must be reliable, and use of a multifunction tester can save much time no need to cross reference tables for various devices and ratings and it also reduces the possibility of errors, as it should have the latest maximum fault loop impedance values integral for the varying protection devices used.

    Chapter 51 - Common Rules It is the case that compliance with standards requires all electrical equipment to be suitable for the nominal voltage.

    Section now refers to the EMC Directive and includes requirements for the designer of the fixed installation.

    Note that minor modifications have been made to Sections and It provides the requirements for the methods of support of wiring systems in escape routes. The regulations concerning the selection and erection of wiring systems impact have been redrafted. The new requirements see
