Client wants cooker moving and therefore a longer cable run is required, the existing cable tests out fine with >299M ohms and good continuity.
The cable has been run behind old oak panel which client does not want touching, so whats my best option for joining 6mm cable that meets regs?

Thank you

every time I have extended a cooker circuit I have just stuck the cables in a 4" adaptable box and used 63 A connectors, All terminations have been accessible and It had a 230 V sticker on it so as far as i am concerned it complies with all regs, but then I am just a trainee so what do I know lol!
