Scope/Introduction: || back to top

ET101:2008 National Rules for Electrical Installations

The scope of TC2 includes the preparation of wiring rules, codes of practice and guides dealing with electrical installations up to 1000V, and interpretation of the rules when requested. The scope of the Rules of TC2 does not extend to the internal wiring of apparatus, or to machine assemblies complying with EN IS 60204 or to mines or quarries. The Rules are not a product standard.

The National Rules are a national standard (which is defined as a voluntary specification having a consensus among those involved). They are recognised in common law as the state of the art and are recognised by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) as a means of complying with the Electricity Regulations. Similarly ET101 is cited in the Building Regulations as the electrical installation wiring standards required in order to comply with the statutory requirements. They have also formally been recognised by the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) as the technical rules to be observed by registered electrical contractors.

The National Rules are prepared in consultation with the Department of the Environment Community and Local Government (DOECLG) the HSA and with industry generally to ensure that national consensus exists, which is the most important aspect of the work of TC2. A major feature of the work is the obligation to participate in CENELEC and IEC, and to ensure that:
1) Irish concerns are taken into account
2) CENELEC harmonization decisions are implemented in the rules

The scope of TC2 also includes CENELEC BTTF 95 which deals with inspection of domestic premises.

ET101:2008 is available for purchase from ETCI Offices. Please visit ETCI's online store.
