    I have a large garage and will be installing an 8 socket ring main. Garage has its own Dist Board. I want 2 outdoor sockets, can these be ran as spurs off ring main or should they be on own circuit

    Not sure what you mean tbh. What does the cu currently supply? You want to add a ring final and another two outside sockets? New ctts. are notifiable and require proper testing.

    Garage I assume commercial so no requirement to notify that is only for domestic, but since commercial electricity at work act comes in, and the ring final was designed for domestic, so one has to work out likely loads at ring final ends, in other words it needs planning, this is not some thing one can do over a forum, no one can design it for you, we have no idea of loads, lengths or any other items.

    If you are planning to use machinery the system needs to be designed by a competent person to allow for inrush currents etc.
    And some Radial ccts might be a better option.

    I'd guess this to be a domestic, as it was a Sunday newbie enquiry!
