Counterfeit alert

We have recently become aware that a counterfeit Guidance Note 3 Inspection & Testing is in circulation. The book was purchased from an Amazon Marketplace seller and features a wide range of errors, including font and colour discrepancies and text errors.

We have also been made aware that there might be counterfeit copies of BS 7671 (the IET Wiring Regulations) in circulation.

Please be aware that you can be held liable for any issues in work arising from adherence to incorrect versions of the IET publications. We strongly recommend that you purchase your books directly from the IET’s approved sellers.

If you have any information about counterfeits, or any queries about a book you have purchased, please contact us: books@theiet.org
