Thanks for replies all. I guess I'll just wait and see what Wednesday brings. It seems a lot of money for something I'll need to use once or twice a year!

Niceic require •BS 5839-1:2008 •BS 5839-6:2004 •BS 5266-1:2005 •Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (PAT) where needed. Since I have carried out PAT I have that code of practice. I have installed a fire alarm system which I have included in my assessment list using the correct standards and the on-site guide and the same with emergency lighting, but the standards where borrowed and for the assessment I am required to have a copy for each. I guess I have to bite the bullet!!

Cant you just buy the electricians guide to fire alarms, and emergency lighting? I am with the NICEIC and i wasnt told to get the full copies! I dont think i would ever really need them.

Thnaks for reply, I have the electricians guide books already. Guess I'm taking the requirements too seriously. Will post any news on this after Wednesday to settle any other worried souls such as myself.

Pretty sure it is black and white. If you're doing those works you'll need the correct British standards.
