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
2. - severe mechanical stresses,
3. - lack of permanent structures,
4. - access by the general public.
Since these risks are greater than those
usually encountered, additional measures are necessary.
