“By producing Amendment 1 to BS 7671:2018 as a stand-alone, free-to-view document, this updated Section 722 will reach industry much quicker than a full, consolidated amendment would allow, enabling installers to take advantage of BS 7671:2018+A1:2020 as soon as possible.”

That's how I've interpreted it. I'll continue to comply with existing requirements until the amendment is published early next year.

Is this not the same as 722.411.4.1 (note iii)?
My guess is that they'll abandon the requirement for a rod to be fitted to EV chargers where the earthing system is T-N-CS, and instead require all future EV charging equipment to be fitted with PEN fault monitoring thus mitigating the need for earth rods.
