Hi Mike,

Basically what you have said is fine.

Notification not required, not even a minor works really but i would.

Hi

As I understand it providing you are replacing like for like and making no changes whatsoever it is not notifiable doubt a minor works cert is required as nothing should have changed, but I think its a good idea to test and issue cert so that job is done properly.

As before really, repairs or like for like swaps do not need notifying or circuits upgrading to current regs.

Classed as maintenance.

Hi guys i agree, but when one of the guys spoke to nic about this, they said any works in bathroom (we was changing a blown bulb- we dont call them that do we lol) needs to be upgraded to RCD???
Other thoughts please????:confused:

That is the NIC's take on the regs.

However, it is classed as maintenance.

No further work required..

Changing the lighting pull cord may be acceptable with lack of rcd protecction[ although its debateable]
Changing the Shower unit without rcd protection would not be acceptable and would also be in contavention of the manufacturers warranty/instructions[ read the installation instructions]....additionally the work would be notifiable if the new shower was of a higher rating.
