    EICR testing and inspection

    Before anyone asks I am a qualified spark.. been off the tools for years and getting back into it.. In regards to EICR’s it’s been a while.. Acceptable to add R1 R2 to Ze for ZS or do you all test all 3 anyway? I know it’s not acceptable to ZS and take off ZE to get R1 R2..
