With the 18th edition coming out in just over a month, there is building debate on what impacts this new standard will have on the way we carry out inspection and testing of electrical installations.
There are a few additions to the inspection schedules, and additional content is required to the minor works certificate – which I think is a good move as it forces the electricians hand to actually carry out a more effective initial verification to their work.
Additions to the minor works certificate include:
- Zdb supplying the final circuit
- Presence of Earthing conductor and bonding conductors
- R1&R2 or R2
- Ring final continuity
- L-L =
- N-N =
- Cpc-cpc =
