am i right in saying that outdoor security lights attached to the outside of a house can have a minor works cert but still need to be notified to building control. also does the main bonding have to be completed as a matter of course

Outdoor lighting is a notifiable job the only exclusion if I remember correctly is if the lights are a sealed kit with the CE marking on it inwhich case it would be a minor.

Can anyone else throw any light on this (excuse the pun):p

If you are only doing the security lights then i think you should advise the customer that they need the bonding either upgraded or if there is none,that it needs to be put right at an additional cost;)

Agree with the chaps above, although i would say if main bonding is not present, then this should be installed, but not necessarily upgraded.

The type of certificate does not dictate whether a job is notifiable or not.

The installation of a outdoor light which is attached to a wall is not notifiable unless there are exposed connections or it involves the installation of a new circuit or the extension of a circuit from a kitchen or a special location.

However, it will require a minor works cert.
