A SPECIAL REPORT 

Full Fibre networks are being built to transform our cities, and ignite a digital revolution. Gigabit-speeds will change the way we work, play, and live – from homes and businesses to schools and hospitals.

But there is an issue with Compliance when installing full fibre into our buildings. And it involves every Compliance Officer, every Estate Manager and every Facilities Manager in every city. 

THE COMPLIANCE COLLISION: BS 7671 vs BS 6701. This Special Report (January 2021) provides evidential information on the correct installation fittings to use when installing fibre optic and other telecommunication cables into homes, businesses and critical city buildings. The Report focuses on the collision between two British Standards. BS 6701 (Telecommunications Equipment and Telecommunications Cabling) and BS 7671 18th Edition (IET Wiring Regulations).

It is a valuable document to aid Compliance for some of the most important cable-handling-in-buildings decisions to be made today  – based on the argument “BS 7671 governs BS 6701”.

THE COMPLIANCE COLLISION: BS 7671 vs BS 6701 has been specifically created for Facility Managers, Estate Managers, Architects and Specifiers by chartered safety experts Malcolm Broomfield Safety (CMIOSH) in conjunction with Firefly Fixings, suppliers of soft-bite metal fibre cable clips – The Firefly Push Grip Clip.
