    Minor Works Cert - No CPC

    I've just installed a couple of additional 12v down lights and changed extractor fan in a bathroom. The lighting circuit is one with no CPC. How would you complete a MEW? Obviously tests are limited in this case, but where would you use LIM, X, - etc in the relevant boxes? thanks.
