Just completed my first 18th edition certificate online

Took me about an hour to work my way through the new overly complicated forms

Lo and behold half of the fields are blank and none of the test results/circuit details have saved and are blank

Why the **** are they continually trying to reinvent the wheel

The old 17th edition certs took about 10 mins and were relatively straight forward

Its like when they removed the fire alarm periodic reports

Just banging your head against a wall constantly with them

British Leyland 1970's = NICEIC

Maybe its easier just to forget testing now as the goalposts are moved monthly


please let me back in to the prison cell.

Agree with Buzz although the easy cert has changed to, so it references the 18th changes, there is nearly another page of tick boxes now just seems over the top compared with the model cert in the BBB also there are extra boxes on circuit details for AFFDs and insulation resistance test voltage.

Trying to sort out the Clik software now, that's even worse...

I've seen a few EIC's recently, issued within the last 2 years , using the "pre check list" forms

What a hopeless situation................
