It's not confidence I lack it's memory, I have to write everything down now days, I am at the age where I forget what I went upstairs for or stop half way up and wonder am I gong up or coming down.

We use easycert from tysoft you can down load a free trial to try it out .1 licence will let you use an Ipad and 1 desktop or laptop
I've used Easycert for many years now. Love it's simplicity and versatility.
Though tbh I mainly use the desktop for typing in certs. On site I just use a form I made up in Word for recording the info in a concise way. It's more productive this way I think. I do occasionally use the Android app if the customer wants the certs immediately. They can be emailed from the app. And saved on the device, and then later imported to the desktop. The range of certs is very good, including fire alarm and emergency lighting. Love it.

Just had a look at Easycert and I like its format, but even though it has a column for testing an AFDD button it has not taken into account the trend towards all RCBO boards and does not have a column for five times load, you have to test it so why no put it on there.

I do like the way it indicates that you have possibly put a decimal point in the wrong place on the certificate, in all a good way forward, but not quite there IMO.

I use Elec Cert which is a word template so you can use it on android or apple or MacBook or pc and it is a one off purchase until the next amendment.
I did try using on site and found it is so much quicker to write on paper and enter on cert later

I also use Easycert. I fill in as I test and so far (insert emoji touching wood) it has been great. Got a stack of books of the various certs sat in the office doing nothing now!

Actually, this is not a software issue, this is due to a change in the 18th edition, where the note after Regulation 643.8 reads:

Effectiveness is deemed to have been verified where an RCD meeting the requirements of Regulation 415.1.1 disconnects within 40 ms when tested at a current equal to or higher than five times its rated residual operating current.

Therefore since then, the model forms in Appendix 6 have been changed so there is now only one box to record the highest disconnection time for an RCD test.

This doesn't make a lot of sense to me either though, TBH, as I'm still testing at 1x, and checking it meets the requirements.
