Hi , I am going to spur off a ring socket circuit, connecting a rcd protected fused connection unit BS4293 to a double socket on the ring, then spur off to a double socket.
As I’m just taking a spur off a ring can I do this a minor works ?
The rcd unit is because the ring is not RCD protected, so as to conform to 17 th
Any ideas you may have would be appreciated
Thanks Pete.

Yes a minor works cert would be fine as the job is a addition and not a provision of a new circuit.

Wouldnt putting the whole ring main on an RCBO, the just spurring to the double socket work for you?.
Are you nic or anything??
If not stick to the original as minor works doesnt cover the breaker side..

Thanks Pete.
is the socket outlet you plan to spur off down stairs?

if it is i would advise putting the whole circuit on a rcbo if possible, might impress mr nic making all the downstairs sockets rcd protected rather than just your spur
