Hi I am an idustrial spark and am not registered to part p. I have been looking at a friends new house he has a m/clad 60A switch fuse spur fed by 25mm tails from the suppliers meter in his basement. This feeds his c/u via 2c 10mm swa, is this ok or does it need to be upgraded. I dont see a problem the cable is rated at more than 60A the armour is the cpc and I cant find a reg against it, but I dont know the Part P regs. Any ideas,thanks.

As long as the cable is suitably rated for the 60A sw fuse then its fine. Must admit though, im not sure i would Be happy leaving it like that

Of course, providing the sub main doesnt run for hundreds of meters!

Part p is a nightmare for the installation industry, but at least industrial/maintenance sparks are having some advantage out of it A friend in need can be turned down now without fall out
Isn't it a rediculous state of affairs when undertrained inexperienced people are flooding the industry that well trained sparks in installation and maintenance are effectively excluded from performing their trade without the registration expense or the labc fees
