Regulations for Electrical Installations in Factories
Electrical installations in factories, is this covered by 17th Edition or EWR?

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?

Moderator's Note: 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
