Myth-busting – Electrical Safety installations Act 202011:19 AM, 3rd August 2020
About 6 days ago 74
I am being told that to comply with new electrical regulations we need a certificate of fitness. I am also being told that the plastic fuse box/consumer unit needs to be replaced with something of non-combustible construction?
This means made of metal!
We have spent the last 50 years taking out metal fuse boxes because they are conductors of electricity. They have been replaced with plastic.
Now we are to take the plastic ones out and replace them with metal?
I am wondering if I am being told a load of nonsense?
Please can you assist?
