    Opinions on this Crabtree TP 10 way board? Got to test this next week after a quick recce on a clients site yesterday.

    satisfactory unsatisfactory

    Hi Guys. If carrying out an EICR you are unable to find a UFH circuits spur, is the EICR still passable under some type of limitation? Or is there a code involved. Thank you! Smarky

    NAPIT EICR forms - observations for SPD and RCD

    I've just started using the NAPIT forms for EIC's and EICR's and they are a bit cumbersome to be fair. Does anyone know which observation is for a lack of an SPD and when the RCD's are type A/C. I know they are a C3 but you need to find it in the bit where you tick "pass all" and it then...

    EICR - C2 for low voltage cable

    Hi, I have just had an EICR carried out and it has comeback with a few C2s. The only one I disagree with is the electrician raised as a C2 the fact that under the kitchen cabinets there are some LED strips with exposed single insulated cables. All these exposed cables are low voltage (24v)...

    Amending EICR report from unsatisfactory to satisfactory

    So I've recently had an EICR for my building. Came back with about 20 odd C2 remedials and a few F1's which resulted in UNSATISFACTORY being written on the report which you'd expect.

    4mm T&E circuits on 32amp breaker. Parts of the circuit run through ceiling, parts through trunking and possibly even the wall. Current carrying capacity won't exceed 30amp. Customer adamant they are fine because previous electricians have said they are fine. What do you do? Tell him tough...

    EICR - Shallow Back Box Depth a Fault?

    Hello, My house has 25mm back boxes throughout, but I’ve noticed the previous owner has installed sockets and switches that seem to suggest/specify 35mm minimum. The sockets and switches do still fit flush on the wall, just that it is incredibly tight behind so the wiring has been routed...
