Have already asked this, but now have a conflict in opinion which I will explain.

Just done my first job, which was 8 flats in a large house.

1361 type II main fuse 100A. Suppliers switch then 25mm tails to a 60947, fused down to 80A with Switch, then 16mm T&E with an additional 10mm cpc to consumer unit. 100 amp breaker with 2 x 63A RCD's.

On the installation cert, Which would you class as the Main Switch? The one on the consumer unit or the 80A 60947-3 which I put in line.

I have used the 100A in the consumer unit as this will be reflective for all the readings taken within the flat.

But a friend of mine has just had a similar job inspected by the NIC and was pulled up about the 60947-3 being the main switch or circuit breaker. He was told to write it on the installed circuit details as a distribution circuit. But to me, the installed circuits are anything after the DB's 100A breaker.

What would your views be on this.

Cheers

Hi Dave,

I think i would agree here as the CU main switch is not at the origin of the installation.

Funny one, as the switched fuse is 9" away from main fuse. And the furthest flat is 15 metres away, so if it was for isolation and within the residence, then the tenants main point, is within the flat.

Will include it as a distribution circuit I think.

Cheers
