    PAT Labels

    The current v4 CoP has been around since 2012, yet most 'pass' labels still bear a "retest due" box, despite 8.4 stating "the date for re-testing should not be marked on the label". I have a v1 (1994) CoP which stated (8.3), "the date on which re-testing is due or the last test date and re-test...

BS7671 states phrases like "in a prominent position at or near the...

    Circuit detail label/sticker

    100 x Swift CD1510P Personalised Circuit Details Label - Does anyone have an idea how I would be able to write these up on a computer and print them off? Would look rough hand written IMO. Cheers

    Dual colour warning labels

    So do you stick them on CU? Are they necessary? Are they a waste of time and materials. Cards on the table - I think we should boycott them completely!

    Labeling solution.

    What are people using for labeling on jobs? I've used simple thermal dymo labellers before which have been ok.

    Hi Regarding labeling of DB's. I have been informed that stickers are not to be used on DB units and that plastic/ traffolyte labels are to be screwed on. Are these regulations or just a preferred method. This was whilst working at a train station. Thanks in advance

    Distribution Board Lables

    Do many of you come across new install distribution boards which don't have any RCD testing labels, last test and next test labels that come with every board you buy, or circuit labels? I've come across loads lately and it bugs me like mad.

    Labelling Machines

    We often have engraved labels made up for control panels. The labeling is the engraved black lettering on white strip type. In the old days these label strips were riveted on the panels but nowadays it comes with 3M double sided adhesive tape which in all fairness usually holds fine. We're at...

    Labelling Earth Connections

    To what extent are you supposed to label earth connections? I usually only put safety electrical connection labels on the points where the earthing is bonded, i.e. on pipes, metal work, etc. At places like joints between tape and cable and at test points for instance I don't put labels. I...
