These new forms that are effective from 1st Jan 2012 I read, do they apply to all installations or just domestic?

They apply to all installations up to 100 Amp supply.

Oh thanks Murdoch, as the installations I have been testing are 400 Amp

In which case you are probably OK as I don't think that the amendment to BS 7671 specifies what certificate for above 100A. I'm sure that there will be people here with opinions!

as far as i know it is just for installations with upto 100A supply so anything bigger i would say is still a PIR but others with far more knowledge and experience may know better than I

The IETElectrical Installation Condition Report Certificates are for Domestic and SimilarPremises with up to 100amp supply.
Myunderstanding of BS7671 is that this is to be used from Jan 2012.
They can be downloaded from the IET website.

Wasn't aware of the 100Amp part. It's not an area I am likely to be looking at any time soon, but is a PIR what is still issued there then?

Been writing up my first "big" EICR tonight, 19 sodding pages. Don't know if its a software issue atm (I use Easycert) but too much double referencing for it all.

The documentation is the same for supplies of 100A or greater with the exception of the inspection schedules.

It was decided that the schedules would only apply to supplies of 100A or less, no inspection schedules are necessary on supplies greater than 100A

The old style schedule of inspections is only to be used when new installation work is being certified.

I have just received inspection pads from the NICEIC for domestic and for supplies greater than 100amps. They have inspection schedules for both. The inspection schedule for the "greater than 100 amps condition reports" follows the regs with boxes to be filled in. Have an NIC inspection on the 9th of March so will ask what is required? seems there is confusion over this?:banghead:
