Happy Birthday to the Electrical Wiring Regulations

On May 11th 1882 the First Wiring Regulations were released,  In those 137 years things have changed.

Originally called  'Rules and Regulations for the Prevention of Fire Risks arising from Electric Lighting'

It was literally a 4 page document with 21 rules.



Over the last 137 years there have been 5  lots of changes of the name.

We are now on the 18th Edition with 560 pages, and countless rules.


All electrical installations that are completed now, have to be compliant with the 18th Edition.

At Bright Spark Electrical Services all are installations are to the 18th Edition.

We are audited yearly by the NICEIC to the Latest Regulations.

Our Appointed Designated Supervisor Peter who achieved 100% in his 18th Edition Exam,  is also a Member of the IET, who are the Regulatory Body who write the Regulations.

I live an a very old house with many different electrical systems. As a condition of my household insurance I had to have the house electrics upgrade to a modern standard. I engaged Bright Spark for the complex project. My experience of their service was that they are a highly professional company who completed the work on time and on budget. However, and just as importantly, the work was carried out with consideration and care, sadly a rare occurrence in today's society. I have no hesitation in recommending Bright Spark to my friends.
