Regulations for Electrical Installations in Factories


Thread Starter


I have a query regarding proximity of 230 volt socket outlet to an earthed wash basin in an industrial premises. What regulation would cover this? Is this covered by 17th Edition or EWR?

<b>Moderator's Note:</b> I think this or some other similar publication may be the 17th edition he is asking about, but I'm not sure.
Your local Electrical Code will specify a minimum distance from the outlet to sink and if a GFI outlet is required. The Electrical Code is a legally binding regulation.

good luck
