My uncalibrated MFT (calibration is a waste of money) packed up the other week but I don’t charge my customers enough to cover replacing tools and equipment. It’s fine though, I just short line to earth with a paper clip and wear free covid-19 gloves from the BP garage so I don’t belt myself. It’s great, everything has tripped so far.

I am not an engineer (I wish!) and I know there are far better sparks than me on here, just for the record @Brian Taylor. Apologies are not necessary as you have done nothing to offend. All I am really saying is the point about BC notification. I can't put it any more simpler than that please don't over read this. You cannot do work in domestic without notification. If you do you will be breaking the law unless it is always non notifiable work. I think most sparks on here know this. Just a word to the (hopefully!) wise really. You did ask!
I only know personally of one person being taken to court under the Part P regs and he notified his jobs, for notification the only people you are really notifying is HMRC he got nailed for tax evasion as they said his declared income didn't match the number and type of jobs he had notified
 
Then your understanding is wrong. If it was a straight rewrite of the last one it wouldn't have been done.

Things that have changed include the new requirements for surge protection, additional requirements for RCD protection in domestic installations, requirements for AFDDs, changes to EV charging, changes to max Zs for RCD protected circuits.

You cannot be carrying out EICRs without a good knowledge of the current wiring regulations, especially not for rental houses where the new law requires them to have an EICR to the 18th edition.
This gets more confusing the more I hear....looking back i note that SPDs are a matter of opinion. Not a hard and fast rule !!

As far as I'm aware there is no need to have a meter calibrated every year only that any meter is checked against a meter that has been calibrated..is do a set of tests with a meter that has been calibrated..record the values and then do same tests with uncalibrated meter..if results are much the same then all ok

So, that's another way you can save money and thus undercut genuine electricians. Don't bother buying regs - top tip eh.

If you are for real, then you shouldn't be doing electrical work for people. I suggest you contact people for who you have done notifiable work for and let them know they need to notify their local authority.

I take it you also have no objection to unqualified/unregistered people doing gas installation work for people?
Non whatsoever if they're making a living them good luck to them would do myself if I had any skills in that area but I'll stick to what I know best.

The rules are very clear on SPDs, including the methods of working out whether they are needed or not.
In reality there will be very few installations where they are genuinely not required.

I bet Brian doesn't fit them!
 
It’s a wind up, Brian Taylor often comments on Chris videos. After 280 odd messages. We’ve taken the hook big time.

Touché Brian.
Whilst I understand that my way of doing things does not accord with the views of the majority of you I fail to understand why you should automatically take the view that I am (in your own words) winding you up. I have been open and receptive to your views and opinions...and greatful for your reasonable advice but I must admit that being told that I should in some opinions be better working for Tesco's seems to be a bit of a put down. I may not be qualified to the extent that most of you seem to be and I may not have the extensive experience that others claim to have but I try to do the best i can with what I have, if I fail to impress some then I apologise to you all for this but I think you must all know that we can't all be Einstein. I any on this site are willing to give constructive and useful advice then I will be dreadful for this but please cease the put downs it's beginning to feel like a bunch of school bullies.

If you click on anyones Avatar the option to "Ignore" will appear in the middle bottom of the drop down, if you then click on it you will then no longer see that persons post, but it does make it a bit of a nonsense when others you don't wish to ignore quote that persons messages.

Brian if you feel you are being bullied then hit Report at the bottom of the post and let staff deal with it. I think this thread has well and truly run its course and is now closed.
