    Good morning all.please see the picture attached , there is a cable coming from the ceiling ( one cable , and connected somehow to the main ring - i believe whether a junction box or else ) attached to a 13 amp fcu . the fcu outputs 2 cables :

    -one goes to a 3 pin socket to be used for a dishwasher ( the dishwasher is 10 amps itself ) --


    -one goes to a 3 amps FCU Then connects using a flex cable to a boiler (boiler rated at 3 amps )

    The switch board is old and does not have RCD .

    is that enough or should i use RCD spur to replace the fcu or any where else .

    any suggestions or help is really welcome. thank you .

    This is the issue you should address. Get an EICR done and and you will see what needs sorted.

    Providing RCD protection, would be an improvement.
    It’s only become a requirement in your case since January this year.
    Last year, it wouldn’t have been required.
