Introducing Irelands New National Rules for Electrical Installations IS:10101

Presentation by Charles Dunn, C.Eng, Chair of NSAI-TC2

The worldwide electrical industry and infrastructure is changing rapidly as electronic advances and environmental awareness forces mankind to innovate. Ireland has come a long way from thatched cottages and rural electrification when ESB was established in 1927, to being the leading data centre and software hub it is now renowned as. Behind this electrification are standards which protect electrical installations to keep the lights glowing and the data flowing, and to protect people from electric shock or fire. ETCI established in 1972 to set down the wiring standards, which have evolved in conjunction with our European partners at IEC.

Today we are still working to ET:101 (2008), and it is time to move forward and align with the latest European Standards. Rapid advances in electrical fault detection and interruption must be reflected in our new wiring rules. The range of electrical installations has advanced with robotics, data centres, electric vehicles, solar panels and other microgeneration systems becoming widespread . Irelands national standards authority NSAI has assembled industry specialist to advise on the new European rules, to adapt them as required for Irelands needs, and to adopt the rules in the form of the new Irish standard IS:10101.

This talk will provide an introduction to Whats New in Irelands National Rules for Electrical Installations, and will interest consultants and facilities managers as well as others involved in the electrical design aspects of the industry.
