Went to National Lighting today to find a mini downlight for shelf lighting in bathroom. Gent sold me a IP67 240v fixture. It was my understanding that 240v was not allowed in Zone 1 unless a shower unit or pump etc. Someone want to clear this up for me.

Luminaires are one of the allowed accessories in zone 1 as long as specifically stated in manufacturer's instructions it is suited to zone 1 installation.

One can't help but think the regulation allowed luminaires to be included in this rule thinking they would only ever be installed o the ceiling though.

can't see a problem as long as it's IP67 and the connections are inaccessible (concealed behind board or whatever)
