Good Morning all,

I am a new member, initially drawn to the forums by the technical help given by you guys and any potential help I may be able to offer.

I am currently doing my AM2, (After 8 years in the industry) As I believe that I need all my papers up to date for the way the industry is going. I am currently working as an electrical site manager and have been revising during the day for the exam at the end of the AM2 (C&G 2382) I believe ?

Getting to the point I cannot seem to reference the regulation numbers from the onsite guide & GN3 to any other document I.e. BS7671. For example

Page 74 of the onsite guide shows (522.6.102) 'In domestic or similar installations....' Where can I reference this number to as (Part 5, Chapter 2, Section 2, reg 6 of BS7671) does not relate to that of the on site guide...

I bet im being stupid but I cant see it for the life of me... Many thanks if your still with me.

if i recall, 522.6.102 refers to cables buried in walls < 50mm deep.
