The On-Site Guide is one of a number of publications prepared by the lET to provide guidance on certain aspects of BS 7671 :2008 Requirements for Electrical Installations (lEE Wiring Regulations, 17th Edition).

BS 7671 is a joint publication of the British Standards Institution and the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

The scope generally follows that of BS 7671. It includes material not included in BS 7671, provides background to the intentions of BS 7671 and gives other sources of information. However, this guide does not ensure compliance with BS 7671. It is a simple guide to the requirements of BS 7671, and electricians and electrical installers should always consult BS 7671 to satisfy themselves of compliance.

It is expected that persons carrying out work in accordance with this guide will be competent to do so.
Electrical installations in the United Kingdom which comply with the lEE Wiring Regulations, BS 7671, should also comply with all relevant Statutory Regulations such as the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, the Electricity Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations 2002 and the Building Regulations, in particular Part P. It cannot be guaranteed that BS 7671 complies with all relevant Regulations and it is stressed that it is essential to establish what statutory and other Regulations apply and to install accordingly. For example, an installation in Licensed Premises may have requirements different from or additional to BS 7671 and these will take recedence over BS 7671.

On-Site Guide Further Information

This Guide is concerned with limited application of BS 7671 in accordance with Part 1 paragraph 1.1: Scope.
BS 7671 and the On-Site Guide are not design guides. It is essential to prepare a schedule of the work to be done prior to commencement or alteration of an electrical installation and to provide all necessary information and operating instructions of any equipment supplied to the user on completion.

Any specification should set out the detailed design and provide sufficient information to enable competent persons to carry out the installation and to commission it.

The specification must provide for all the commissioning procedures that will be required and for the production of any operational manual.

The persons or organisations who may be concerned in the preparation of the specification include:
  • The Designer(s)
  • The Installer(s)
  • The Electricity Distributor
  • The Installation Owner and/or User
  • The Architect
  • The Local Building Control Authority
  • The Fire Prevention Officer
  • The COM Coordinator (the Planning Supervisor)
  • All Regulatory Authorities
  • Any Licensing Authority
  • The Health and Safety Executive.

In producing the specification, advice should be sought from the installation owner and/or user as to the intended use. Often, such as in a speculative building, the detailed intended use is unknown. In those circumstances the specification and/or the operational manual must set out the basis of use for which the nstallation is suitable.

Precise details of each item of equipment should be obtained from the manufacturer and/or supplier and compliance with appropriate standards confirmed.
