In the NAPIT booklet EIRC Codebreakers 18th edition version Section 5.12.3 it states cables in walls not protected less than 50mm deep not RCD protected will be C2 failure.
In the Electrical installation condition reporting:
Classification codes for domestic and similar electrical installations Issue 5 it says on Page 14; Code C3 – Improvement recommended
Absence of RCD protection for cables installed at a depth of less than 50 mm from a surface of a wall or partition where the cables do not incorporate an earthed metallic covering, are not enclosed in earthed metalwork or are not mechanically protected against penetration by nails and the like.
Which one is correct?
