Personally, I hate the zones of what you can and cant have in a bathroom, whats the chances of the boiler ever needing to be touched when one is wet?

It should be enclosed as moisture cant be doing it and good, but.......

A sticker on it stating NOT TO BE TOUCH WITH WET HANDS should suffice.
 
The 600mm distance is from what ......guess the bath/shower.

Is there a shower? If there is depending if it as a basin or not will determine your zones.

Again depending on your zones, will dictate what IP rating your appliance/boiler must be. Need a little more info really

As above...is it outside the zones....?.....is it RCD protected..?....is supplementary bonding required...?.....it's a bit more complex than the boiler itself just being there.
 
Recommendations:- Box in the boiler so it is enclosed and out of zones (if I've read your post correctly).

it is 600mm away from the bath.the boxing is only protecting the pipes at the bottom of the boiler.so the boiler is not boxed in.it has supplementary bonding,not rcd.i will call tomorrow morning NICEIC technical helpline.if anyone want to know their answer let me know.

Quite common to see boilers in bathrooms , no real drama in itself , but i'd like too see it boxed in or in a cupboard or rcd protected if left out in the open.
If it cant get splashed and has the supplementary bonding connected i'd give it a code 3 with the reason as being unsuitable for the environment and not having a rcd.
As for the guidance you get from the NIC tech desk , i'd rather not know as its usually some insane drivel i rarely agree with lol.
