Additional requirements for AC final circuits

Changes relating to devices for isolation and switching

Clarity in respect to regulations relating to wiring systems in escape routes

Potential amendments to the requirements relating to overvoltage and the selection and erection of Surge Protection Devices

Considerations on how an electrical installer can prevent the appearance of a dangerous touch voltage in the event of the loss of the main connection to earth

Potential for section relating to electrical installations in caravan / camping parks and similar locations to align with IEC 60364-708
