As a semi-retired M.I.E.T. engineer, I'm wondering if replacing MCB's in a C/U counts as notifiable under Part 'P'.
Or is it non-notifiable as it's a like-for-like replacement as per first item in Table 1?

Replacement with the same rated item as a repair is not notifiable, but replacing an MCB with a higher rated item as part of a planned piece of work would be notifiable as it's not in the list of work that need not be notified in Part P. (Arguing that an MCB is an item of fixed electrical equipment is reading something into the regulations that isn't there.)

that would probably be notifiable if you replaced a 3A fuse with a 5A. :6:

No replacement of an item of equipment is not notifiable, irrespective of whether it's like for like.
