    It never ceases to amaze me as to why organisations consistently feel the need to change terminology for no valid reason or purpose or benefit.
    It was called earthing. cross bonding,
    bonding, Main equipotential bonding......
    and in On site Guide red book...section 4.2.......Main Protective Bonding...and on the next line it's called... protective Equipotential bonding.
    What a lot of Borax...and cobras.

    Nahhhhhhh, don't be silly. It's so that the idiots that come up with all this **** can justify the job they don't do properly. CORGI laid the foundations for this in the 1980's, GAS SAFE and the NICEIC have just taken it forwards and upwards to yet another level.
    After all, how do you think they could make as much as they do unless they change regs every 5 mins so forcing registered members having to fork out yet another £600 for yet another course that tells them nothing new.

    Bulbs go in the ground, lamps into light fittings.
    It’s why I always ask for a headlamp lamp at motor factors.

    Not quite right
    It's 600mm from point of entry into building according to gas safe people (the plumber signing off on the job I was running asked, as a bit of a clanger had been dropped before I took the site over but that got us round it

    I ask for 10mm green and yellow because it could be used as an earthing conductor or bonding conductor.
