If it’s outside the zones then it’s outside the zones.
Do confirm Zs to the lighting points, as the old ones were SELV and they may not have got that right. If you are adding more lights then it needs RCD now whether it’s in a bathroom zone or not :) .

Why are you asking all these questions. Are you doing an EICR.
I have been asked to do eicr's and its a minefield of debatables and questionable answers.
I asked the questions here because , i thought , this was the place to ask them.
I come from a commercial background but domestic eicr-ing is something new to me.
Lots of years in the trade , 2391 , D&V ,(get her) but domestic is a whole new animal that I wish I hadn't petted , even with the new 18th ed codebreakers its more ballbreakers tbh.

lots , unfortunately , and I seem to get lots and lots of grey areas where people , including me , seem to be umming and arrring (arghing in some cases) about what's what

Hello
Writing quick, in rush, miss out words, must go
my apologies , although i was in a rush... finding 230v spots in a bathroom threw me , but with the zoning changing from the 17th , no addition to the 2250 above a shower , then its ok now to have them in.
or am I missing something.
thanks in advance.

Hi - I’ve only got Amd3 of 17th and the 18th to hand, But I can’t see a change to zones that affects this (fig 701.1) or to what can be used in the zones (reg 701.55). Maybe an earlier edition?
 
Surely common sense will prevail

Sealed unit outside zones doesn’t even warrant commenting on

If it was an open fronted unit then it might warrant a C3
