    Look guys the issue isn't what the regs say, it's down to the situation the o.p. is in. The spark certifying the work subbed it out and...

    He installed the 2.5mm from the CU to the sure wire, then used 1.5mm for everything else. It's actually quite a good idea.

  13. Coloumb replied to the thread 2.5mm light circuit cable - illegal in this case?.

  14. Coloumb replied to the thread 2.5mm light circuit cable - illegal in this case?.

    But WHY is he issuing the cert? Is this your own re-wire that he is certifying?

  15. Coloumb replied to the thread 2.5mm light circuit cable - illegal in this case?.
