7.19.1 - Introduction

There is no section in BS 7671 dealing with exhibitions, shows and stands. The following is thus based on Chapter 12 of Guidance Note 7, which in turn depends on a draft 'EC Publication. There can be little doubt that before long this material will become part of the Regulations. The subject matter deals with temporary electrical installations in exhibitions, shows and stands, both indoor and outdoor within temporary or permanent structures. There will be increased risks in these situations due to:

1. - the temporary nature of the installations,

2. - severe mechanical stresses,

3. - lack of permanent structures, and

4. - access by the general public.

Since these risks are greater than those usually encountered, additional measures are necessary.
