Axis want to support clients to achieve greener driving options that work towards zero carbon regulations.

Our charge point installation teams have received OLEV-approved manufacturing training and take care to ensure that all work is carried out to comply with 18th Edition and that all EVSEs are signed off complete with the relevant documentation on commission. Axis has an ISO9001:2008 Quality Management System (QMS) in place which incorporates a stringent inspection regime to ensures each installation is monitored for compliance at each stage of the build.

Our installation teams are aware of the relevant regulations and compliance requirements that EV charge point installations must meet, including:

  • BS-EN-61851-1:2019,
  • Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulations 2016
  • Electrical Equipment Safety Regulations 2016
  • Design compliant with BS 8300:2009+A1:2010
  • IET wiring regulations BS 7671:2018+A1:2020
  • IET Code of Practice for Electric Vehicles Charging Equipment Installation
  • BS EN 61851-1:2011
  • Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations 2002

Long-term efficiency is key and we work with a specialist team of suppliers to source sustainable, long-last materials.

To achieve a low/zero carbon installation, clients will also need to consider their energy supplier, opting for a supplier that is emission-free and powered via wind or solar panels. The effectiveness and carbon performance of installations will also depend on whether the client follows manufactures guidelines for annual or cyclical inspections.

In terms of future regulations, there is no UK wide regulatory or legislative requirement for EV charging provision although some Cities and Local Authorities have their own requirements. The leading local policy regarding the inclusion of charge points in new developments is the London Plan, with other regional and local planning documents often taking their lead from this.

Our dedicated management team and Quality and Sustainability manager regularly review and incorporate any new or upcoming changes to carbon regulations to ensure that are further proofing our installations as efficiently as possible.
