hi all. im new to the forum and have a quick question. i have applied to join the niceic domestic installer scheme after starting up on my own this month and have my assessment in a months time so id like this question answered. i am certificating one new cooker circuit added to an existing CU which is covered with rcd and has the necessary main bonding. my EIC will cover the new circuit only so does that allow me to 'N/A' the schedule of inspections box thats to do with locations containing a bath or shower even though the bathroom light fitting doesnt comply with the regs. or do i 'X' this box and add a note to the 'comments on existing installation'. im asking as i dont want any excuses for the assessor to fail me. ive been an employee to a domestic installer for the last 8 years so have not needed to certify my work previously. any help would be much appreciated. thanks

Your EIC covers what you put in the description of "works" - so if its add new circuit for cooker - that's exactly what it covers.

When completing your schedule of tests against existing circuits put "used" and for any unused put "spare" then the one you have will stand out. Obviously you have to complete all the "main" tests for the incoming etc.

When you complete the inspections you ONLY complete those relevent to your new circuit.

Hope this helps

The EIC is only for the new circuit you have installed, obviously earthing and bonding has to be up to scratch as well.
