Amendment 3 Compliant

Consumer Units

What is Amendment 3?


The third amendment to BS7671 (Wiring Regulations) now requires consumer units installed in domestic premises to be manufactured of non-combustible material or located in a cabinet or enclosure made of non-combustible material.

Remember:

All installations must comply with BS7671 (Wiring Regulations).

Ensure your all-metal consumer unit enclosures feature no external plastic parts.

The installation of a consumer unit must be checked and certified by a registered competent person before the supply is connected.

The number of breakers required will depend on the nature of the premises and must be in accordance with BS7671 (Wiring Regulations). The Pro Elec range caters for all combinations.

Never attempt the installation of a consumer unit if you are unqualified to do so.
