H Chaps,

Basically no, as they are surface mounted.

Agreed.

Only query I might have is what is the 20A switch controlling?
 
Does this mean we're gonna see the return of the council style re-wire where all is surface mounted so only RCD for Ground floor sockets!!! Tee Hee!!

I didn't think so.

It's a small workshop with a 3 horse power table saw saw
The plan is to run 2.5 singles in conduit to the 20a switch for the saw; a 16a C type breaker should accommodate the start up induction current (around 15a and then run @ around 9a).
Lighting in conduit to wall plate level then in minitrunking to HF fluorescents, with non maintained emergency bulkhead on the phase.
RFC on 32a RCBO

Have I covered it?

What about RCD protection on sockets for non-instructed/ skilled persons? eg the home owner.

Well i think you have just about got it covered.

No RCD protection for lighting and 20A radial and RCBO on socket outlets.

Job done!
