Hi Tuckermot
Yes the new CU and spur will be fine but these will need to be at diff sites within 20mins drive so new CU in one property and the spur in another property.
The examiner will be testing your knowlage of bs7671 2008 and testing/inspection as well as your installations.
Regards
Tony.

Kung. For the minor job - the socket on a spur - does that mean the full range of tests on that circuit? Continuity and polarity, insulation resistance, calculated and measured Zs, Ze, RCD disconnection times? As well as main bonding continuity and supplementary bonding? I suppose as per the Minor works Cert.

Hi tuckermot
you only have to do th EIC for that job and then state on work covered that you have done bot csu and spur then you'll have to find a different peice of work for the second site. I just had my yearly visit and was dead lucky that i had done the csu early in the year then added a circuit for an extension.

P.S Tuckermot
Just relax in will be over before you know it ! tips are
1) Make him a cuppa
2) Get an afternoon apt pref on a friday as he will want to get home and try to beat the traffic you might find this easier as he might not want to see second site after tea etc the hotter the tea the better (less time on assessment) if you make a good impression from the start you should be fine as he will prob be able to judge within the first 15-20min if your compitant.
if all else fails try eating garlic before he arrives ! less questions asked.
Hope this helps
Regards and best of luck !
Tony.
