a number of key industry regulations. The guide – Creating Cable Pathways – follows recent updates to the IET Wiring Regulations, as well as the release of the Dame Judith Hackitt Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety Final Report.

New guide for updated cable regulations A

new guide that outlines the key updates

relating to cable pathways has been launched by Legrand UK & Ireland, following updates to

It has been launched to provide electrical installers with assistance and recommendations on how to best specify cable containment systems, explaining how to create a cable pathway through a building while navigating the current standards landscape. The guide provides the relevant information key stakeholders such as architects, designers, consultant and electrical contractors need to know. Mark Williams, lead marketing manager – Cable Management for Legrand UK & Ireland, says: “Legislative updates can often be a minefield for electrical professionals, but the consequences of not meeting guidelines can be significant. Our paper provides installers with everything they need to know on the updates, to ensure cable pathways are completed effectively and safely.” The short guide provides an overview including fire safety in design, management and use and the

Construction Products Regulation (CPR). It also explains the relevant changes to the BS 7671:2018 IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition, which include: • Protection against thermal effects • Locations with risk of fire due to the nature of processed or stored materials • Selection and erection of wiring systems • Wiring systems to minimise the spread of fire

Mark adds: “Safety excellence in wiring has been heightened in recent years and wiring systems must be adequately supported against their premature collapse in the event of a fire. As the built environment continues to evolve, installers must ensure they have absolute knowledge of the changes to fully equip themselves and their projects against hazards.”

In addition to the guide, Legrand has also created

a CPD – “Creating a Cable Pathway Through a Building” – which brings relevant updates together to offer guidance on how to create effective cable management pathways. The CPD, which can be delivered online, has been designed for professionals – both experienced and new to the industry - looking to upgrade their skills and refresh their knowledge.
