Hi All,

I am new to this forum, and have been working for myself for 18 months now. I have been an electrician since 1992, but had a break for 8 years and became an IT manager.

I wonder if you can help me get my head round something. I understand that all new builds (domestic) and to the 17th Edition and Part P, but if I go into say a 60 year old property, with a wylex rewirable fuse board, 6mm main earth, 6mm bonding, and I am asked to install a new socket on the ground floor ring, do I need to upgrade the earth, bonding and possibly the CU to meet the regs?

I know this is a bit long winded, but I understand the regs, but I am not 100% sure when to apply them.

Thanks for your help...
