CFEC Ltd are qualified to City and Guilds level and we carry out work in accordance with British Standards Regulations BS7671, 17th edition.

The 17th edition, released in January 2008 and amended in 2011, is the latest edition of BS 7671, and became effective for all installations designed after 1 July 2008..  One of the more significant changes is that 30 mA RCDs will be required for socket outlets that are for use by ordinary persons and are intended for general use. This improves the level of protection against electrical shock in the UK to a level comparable to that in other EU countries. The 17th edition incorporates new sections relating to microgeneration and solar photovoltaic systems.
