The area is...
I did a small job for a client earlier in the week and told her I need to complete a Minor Works cert - as you do..
She said that she didn't need one because she had this - waving an EICR under my nose.
Looking through the document, it all looked good until the last page - test results...

At work, some people are having static electric shock and it's causing there's and there neighbor's monitor to go blank...
I do not really expect any replies, just a little rant, a voice in the wilderness. I shelved the idea of going into my loft coversion today. The neighbours have legitimate concerns regards all sorts. The cost of appointing surveyors is such that we have decided we will have to move if we want a...
I have some large sections of a dist board I need to blank off and was wondering if anyone had come across long lengths of dist board blanks in black. Ideally something like plastic trunking lid that can be cut to size.

i seem to remember 3 mtrs but something in my mind Is telling me it can be greater under certain rules.
Im a little confused on this one, however may be simple to others. A client has requested that they no longer want an intermediate switch on their lighting circuit which also includes two other 2way switches. They want it completely gone.
I want to do the job with least disruption. However a...
so I was looking at office building in London, lights in corridor and stair well operated by PIR's, mounted on ceiling and walls. I am unfamiliar with exact type, looks like single plastic surface box with blank plate. problem is they walk through the corridor and they could be at the other end...

The one that my indicator came with has a different number of squares and i'm trying to over lay it on the MCS one and its a 'king nightmare!!!
Order placed tonight - delivery hopefully this week !
I'm going to document the installation and present ongoing results for interested parties as todate no-one seems to have done this

I've just had a sparky come round and do this work, but i'm not sure it's correct, or even legal. But i'm no spark. Please see the attached picture.
The junction box is where the light switch used to be, but we've put a fake wall up and as such needed the light switch there and this...
Ive got my inspection in a months time in which the NICEIC engineer comes to check my work. I understand that the certificates that I have to show him as to be unlogo'ed.
Can I use the certificates from this site Forms for electrical contractors - IET Electrical or is there another...
Hi, help please.
I'm moving an electrical socket, only a few inches, and want to use the existing box as a connector/junction.
Is there a specific connection product, on a blanking plate, or should I use block connectors?
Or should I buy a junction box, and plaster over. In which case what...
