    If a circuit has a switchfuse/isolator.....Do you record that on the cert as a seperate DB??? (Obviously as switch fuse)

    I only tend to enter a switch-fuse if it is a distribution circuit, is it being used to isolate equipment.

    Earlier I had a 3ph 32amp MCB supplying some 32amp commandos with isolators. They'd then tapped off to a 32amp fused isolator. (To supply another commando socket - I presume for local isolation)
    The feed side of this was then supplying a 2w DB supplying a socket off a 16amp MCB. I've recorded the circuit feeding the commandos and then the sub DB.
    But it got me thinking.
    Should you do a separate (DB) on the cert each time the protective device changes????

    I don't quite get why they didn't just follow suit with the existing interlock sockets. Rather than putting a 32 amp switch fuse??

    If I understand your description correctly!

    Could you do a sketch of the connections and upload it as a photo?

    possible sub mains ,who knows .

    Its not a sub main. It's a fused interlock isolator supplying a 32amp commando socket directly below. A 10mm T and E has been taken out of the supply side to a 2w DB next to it. Main switch and 16amp MCB. This supplies a socket below.

    I have recorded on test sheet the circuit supplying commandos and Interlock. The sub main DB supplying socket.

    My question is should you record every time the protective device changes.
