Ermmm...... what size trunking is that? Those don't look big enough to be 25mm tails.

This is one of those ones where the EICR coverage is tricky.

In some flats the BNO knows what is going on and will be making sure their bit is maintained - in others it's just a 'guy' at the management company who has no idea what you are talking about if you pose a question through the landlord regarding their feed to a flat.

Personally, I'd exclude locked cabinet areas from the EICR for flats - or at most comment that the BNO should be consulted for further information.

But afaik, there seems to be no requirements for BNOs to periodically inspect their side of things - at least not in the recent landlord legislation. I see no reason why they shouldn't have to supply to flat owners a certificate on request with all information necessary on the supply to their flat.

Maybe extend it to include proof that all fire systems/emergency lighting are working, cladding has been verified as safe, etc - might as well make them do something for the income they get monthly for failing to ever have a working intercom...:rolleyes:

I think I will have to add it as an operational limitation though its less than ideal

You can compare the size to the 25mm tails here , even so I would need to confirm the fuse size and whether it’s permitted for this fuse to protect those cables
The best way I have found is to try and fit a 10mm crimp on the end. If it's tight it's 10mm .If it's loose try a 16mm crimp.
