New Cable Regulations ROI

On the 5th of September 2017 amendment No.2.2 of the ETCI National Rules for Electrical Installations (Fourth Edition ET101:2008) will be implemented across the Republic Of Ireland. This new change in regulations will prohibit the use of Twin and Earth cable with a bare reduced size of protective cover.

The protective conductor now requires green/yellow insulation and must have the same cross sectional area as the phase conductor. These new requirements apply to all sizes of Twin & Earth cable ranging from 1.0mm to 16.0mm.† From the 5th of September onwards all cable used must comply with these regulations.

Correct cable to use in ROI

This change may pose challenges for different sectors of the electrical industry, sourcing the appropriate cable may be difficult. Keep an eye on the Cable Section of the website in the coming weeks as Meteor will be stocking all sizes before the implementation date on 5th September 2017.

*NOTE: This amendment is to regulations in the Republic of Ireland only.
