Protection against fire resulting from the installation and use of electrical installations has been necessary ever since the use of electricity was first introduced into buildings.

In fact, it is worth noting that the first edition of the Wiring Regulations, introduced in 1882, was called the Rules and Regulations for the Prevention of Fire Risks Arising from Electric Lighting.

This Guidance Note is concerned primarily with Chapter 42 and those other parts of BS 7671 which concern protection against thermal effects. It does not attempt to deal comprehensively with the safety of personnel in the event of fire, since this is beyond the scope of BS 7671.
