On their website they mention City and Guild certifications, but don’t list the...

Hi folks, this will probably be obvious to most folks on here but I'm new to this. A friend is putting together a quote to rewire my house. He is a qualified and very experienced electrician working for a big local firm but this will be a private job. He's not joined one of the schemes like...
Please can people clarify what value they insert in the Max Zs field on certification.
I've always input 100%. Currently in disagreement with another person as they are specifying 80%.
Done my 2391 in 2008 and I was taught and told it's always 100% and it's down to the QS to interpret the...

This is a question I have to admit I don't know the answer to, hard to believe I know! What is the period after which test equipment needs re- calibrating? As far as I know it is yearly, but I could be wrong. I ask because the dno I worked for had an engineer who built a test rig. The idea was...
