New Electrical Installation Regulations


The following snippets form the opening paragraphs of an excellent piece authored by Chris Greager, National Director of Operations, Electrical Contractors’ Association South Africa. Chris’s article is a comprehensive overview of the new Electrical Installation Regulations, compiled by an industry expert.

“The long awaited new Electrical Installation Regulations (not to be confused with the Wiring Code SANS 10142-1) were published in the Government Gazette on 6 March 2009. The Regulations become effective on 1 May 2009, but regulation 5(6) will only becomes effective on 1 April 2010.

The draft Regulations have appeared in various forms and have been under discussion since 2001, and much acrimonious debate has taken place. However, with one or two exceptions which I will mention below, they are a great improvement on the current Regulations that were published in October 1992, and bring a lot more clarity and control.”
