    Confusing EICR, 'Satisfactory' assessment but C1 present

    As a newbie to this forum, I'm hoping that someone can help me understand a particular aspect of the EICR that was done on behalf of the previous owners of my current house. At the time (which I admit was some while ago) I was slightly confused by it but in all the chaos of buying the house, I...

    Could This Be A Fused Neutral?

    Hi, came across this today, double width cutout, never seen it before. Not sure if it could be fused on the neutral or whether I am worrying with no need. Any advice appreciated. (Haven't pulled the cutout obviously, even though it isn't sealed - I have a feeling it might be too stiff to pull...

    Condition report for the old installations

    I have to do a Condition Report for an old installation. Everything is ok but the installation doesn't have RCD's, even for those circuits required by the 17th Edition. Can I write that the installation is "satisfactory" without RCD's ?

    EICR retification.

    What do you guys do after rectification of defects listed on an EICR. Reinspect the installation and issue a new EICR? Do you charge for the inspection again? Issue a new EICR? Fill out a MW or EIC for the rectifications and provide with the 1st EICR?

    Which test applies? Fail "condition report" code3 or Pass PIR code4?

    Just trying to understand if a 15yr old first floor flat, should be refused certificate because no RCD present. Has PIR code4 been scrapped? Is 'Condition Report' a new beast, if so when does it apply. The ESC 'Best Practice Guide issue 3', on classification codes for condition reporting...
