The Fencing Officials Commission has released the following guide to wiring epees:

"When attaching the wires to the sockets inside the bell guard, two main rules must be considered. First, the fencer should not be able to break or make contacts between the two wires – either accidentally or intentionally. Second, the wires must be arranged so that the referee can completely inspect them to ensure that the fencer cannot create a contact."

The linked document has photo references included.  Expect strict enforcement to begin August 1 2013.
