BS 7671:2018 - 18th Edition RCD Test results

RCD 1x and 5x Test results

The model form removed the 1x and 5x test result boxes and replaced it with a generic box to record the tripping time of the RCD/RCBO.

We decided to keep both the 1x and 5x boxes because we carry out some compliance checking for test result times, and we needed to know which test had been carried out to do this.

How to change between editions

Certificate settings

Any BS 7671 certificate can be toggled between the 17th and 18th Edition.

You can still create 17th Edition Installation certificates for a period of time, for installations that were designed to the 17th Edition.

EICR's should now be created using the 18th Edition option as you should be testing to the latest Edition
