The IET have announced that the Draft for Public Comment (DPC) for Amendment 1 is now open from 1st October until 30th November 2019. The DPC will consist of changes to Section 722 - Electric Vehicle Charging Installations

Amendment 1 to BS 7671:2018 will enable a more practical solution for Electric Vehicle Charging Installations.

Due to be published in early 2020, the Amendment will be free to view on the IET and BSI websites, and will form part of a consolidated version of BS 7671 following the next major amendment, which is expected in 2022.

Frank Bertie, NAPIT Chief Technical Officer said: "This update is absolutely necessary to ensure EV installers have the correct guidance to hand for the installation of practical and safe charging points. This is a chance for NAPIT members and the industry to have their say."
