If they are needed for the course, then you will have to pay for them. No updates printable for the last amendment released I am afraid.

Course books are usually supplied , but nice to have your own. No downloads for the 1st amendment , new book required.

what kind of a question is this?.....GO AND BUY ONE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!!!
Why the aggresive reply?

he simply wanted to know if he could print off something to comply with the latest regs ( as can sometimes happen) or weather he had to buy the full new book.

There are many, many chnages and alterations in Amendment no.1
Also, a lot of the sections have been jigged around to align with European documents.

There's a thread with links to an overview doc/video
http://www.electriciansforums.net/electrical-wiring-theories-electrical-regulations/36119-bs7671-amendment-1-summary.html

Its not possible /practical to "amend" a BRB and turn it into a BGB. So, its hand in the pocket time, you'll need a green OSG too.
When you go to the Part P scam provider they'll want to see that you have these, plus some other docs that you'll never look at again....

Unfortunately as already mentioned you'll need to 'invest' in a new BGB...it's all part of the system intent on bleeding the honest sparks dry.
