    You will need to perform all the tests required to complete the fields on the EIC. Methods for performing these tests are described on your On-Site Guide.
    If you have installed new circuits in a domestic property this is notifiable work under the Part P of the Building Regulations and you are required to notify the Local Authority Building Control.
    I assume you are not able to self-certify the work so can expect to pay them for the privilege of inspecting it for you.

    Have 2 schedules of test results one for the first CU showing your new circuit to the 2 way CU and the other schedule showing the new circuits on the CU that you installed. 1 inspection sheet and all the other details needed. All tests required apart from ring continuity if you have no ring finals

    Your description of works on the EIC is what you need to do ..



    So something like ..... Install new circuit number ?? And install 2nd fuseboard and new circuits for .....

    You have to ensure earthing and bonding are up to spec, plus your circuits must comply with the latest regs.

    On your schedule of results for the existing board, I would use state "used" for existing circuits, and spare for any unused.

    With your qualifications how come you don't know about the certificates.

    You need to deal with the part.p

    The Certsure on-line certification, uses the phrase 'NOT WOKED ON' for those circuits, not worked on! Succinct and to the point.

    The notification of your new circuits is an issue that needs consideration. Have you done this job for financial gain?
