    We all know that the regs have mistakes. That is why there are frequent amendments to rectify them.

    So the same mistake has been in the last goodness knows how many editions?

    And obviously you don't ever make a mistake or get something wrong Winston.

    I actual fact the regs are based on numerous other standards. When those other standards are updated the regs are also updated to conform with the new standard. Nothing to do with mistakes.

    We don’t need a genius. How about a 5A BS546 plug and socket.

    I know. My response was directed at you. As evidenced by the fact that I replied to you, not the OP.

    What about someone's makes up a lead using a 5 amp plug and a 13 amp socket and puts an oven in the loft?

    Genius idea, put an unfused plug and socket on it, pure genius.

    I dare you to name the regulation from the current edition of BS7671 that it contravenes. If you can’t or won’t name the reg, then it is neither dangerous nor in need of improvement.

    He can't, I've already given him the reg that permits it.

    Indeed. I just wanted to see him attempt to justify the comment. I am sure we had this discussion a week or two back - he didn’t learn.

    yes, I recall that.

    There must be something wrong with him.

    Yes, he persists with nonsense even when presented with evidence to the contrary. His behaviour on the other forum ended up with him being removed permanently from there. I wonder if the mods here will take the same action, if we complain enough.

    Lets hope so.

    The big worry mate is that some of his ramblings are downright dangerous.

    You can make something foolproof but not idiot proof.

    It does not need a fused plug. It is on a 6A MCB.

    EICR are always someone’s opinion and in mine it is dangerous and in need of improvement.

    And I’ve already said mistakes are made in the regs and that is why there are frequent amendments.

    The amplifier and cable assembly and its plug and fuse have been tested by the manufacturer, if the design called for a round pin plug it would have been fitted during assembly, a minor and somewhat pedantic fact maybe but one you may appreciate.

    Just as well you are not a real electrician then.

    No, I think we should give 'Winston' a chance. Maybe @Wellwisher could post one of his EICRs on here. Maybe he's better than we think....

    That is just a load of rubbish. Until recently they were made without plugs. Then when plugs became a requirement they were fitted. The same unit sold abroad are with local plugs WITHOUT fuses.
