Cables concealed in walls at less than 50mm deep

by Steve on May 17, 2009

Q

During Periodic Inspections I often find that cables are concealed in walls at less than 50mm deep and are not protected by RCD.

Which Recommendation Code should I give?

 

A

Code 4 (does not comply)

Although all installations need to be assessed against the current edition of BS7671, this does not necessarily mean they require upgrading, unless a departure from the current requirement constitutes a real or potential danger.
