    RCD disconnection times on 2018 forms

    Evening all, happy Friday! On the new forms there is only one column for RCD disconnection times. I understood you would just record the highest of the 5x readings but on looking around to confirm I found this article on Professional-Electrician: "The model forms in Appendix 6 have been...

    What to put in 'Distribution reference' on forms?

    This is something I've been meaning to ask for sometime. What do you guys put for 'Distribution reference, or distribution reference number' on the forms? Sometimes there is what looks like a specific number on the CU, but more often than not there is nothing to distinguish a particular CU.
