I have thought that they should be freely available on the internet and you pay if you want a paper copy.

The guide don't include all regs!

Not one to cause an argument...

but you do need to sit back and look at the bigger picture of book publications in general...

whichever way you want to look at it "BS7671" and all associated guidance notes.. OSG etc... etc..

ARE "specialist publications" for a small number of the population...

They never going to be top of the best sellers list or even in the top 10 books recommended by Richard & Judy!!! :eek: ; \

So not get to the

Hey Specs, OK I take your point about the price of the regs, had'nt looked at it that way.

So you have copy of Magnets Bulbs and Batteries too, I use mine as the On -Site guide, the ELECSA guy was'nt that impressed though.

Thats weird , Specs, how did you know what is written on the front of my OSG. I'll have to hide it inside my 1963 Eagle comic pull-out , The Wonderfull World of Electricity & Magnetism for Girls.

I get a bit confused when something is referred to as a 'British Standard' as it implies that this is something that should be available to everyone in Britain. I appreciate the cost of publication for a limited number of books - but this should be available on the internet for free as it allows anyone to check up on what is specified. How can it be a standard if it's hidden?
