Q. Amendment 1 of BS7671 includes a new Section 729 - Operating and Maintenance Gangways, where it gives clear guidance on distances of gangways in front of switchgear. Does this apply to a domestic situation?
A. No, this section only applies to switchgear and controlgear, where access is restricted to skilled or instructed persons.
Note: If you are designing switch rooms that fall into this category, please read this section carefully.
