Discuss Question regarding signing off 32a ring circuit with broken CPC ring continuity in the Electrical Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

I installed a kitchen ring recently. Went back to test after the builders had finished and found that the CPC is broken somewhere inaccessible, everything else tests normal. I’ve got continuity on live conductors, and even with the broken CPC, each socket is connected to the CPC and tests with an acceptable Zs value.

What are my options to be able to sign this off without any destructive investigation / remedial work?

My first thought was to split the ring into two 20a radial circuits. But it would be preferable to leave it connected as a ring for increased capacity.

As far as I understand it the fact that the CPC doesn’t have ring continuity isn’t affecting safety or disconnection times, so is there a reason I couldn’t sign this off and simply note this fact?
