New On-Site Guide, Guidance Notes and associated publications

The changes in the new Wiring Regulations mean that most associated titles will also need to be updated. Publication of the IET On-Site Guide is scheduled for release early in July with Guidance Notes 3 and the Electricians Guide to the Building Regulations (Part P) following at the end of July. The remainder of the Guidance Notes and student text will be published during August and September.


Guaranteed genuine IET stock

In the past, the wiring regulations and associated titles have become the target of fraudsters. Potentially incorret and dangerous counterfeit copies have been printed outside of the UK and find their way into the the UK market via Amazon, Ebay and non-accredited resellers. We work closely with the IET to protect electricians from inadvertently buying these fraudulent copies and alongside the hologram found insde many IET publications, we also affix a sticker to each of the books we supply to guarantee genuine IET stock.We will therefore only accept returns of IET titles with our stickers still attached. Should you wish to receive your books without these stickers, please note this is the "special instructions" area when placing your order.
