    So am i correct than reg 443.4 means unless we provide a risk assesment that states why we are not using a spd in consumer unit changes then we must fit one??

    That’s how I interpret it.

    Not sure how you can carry out a risk assessment however because it states that you have to do a calculation with the different lengths of each element of the distributions various cable lengths.

    Lpal, Lpcl, Lpah & Lpch

    Other than asking the DNO not sure how these can be determined.

    So I guess the only real way is to add type 2 devices to each CU adding £200+ to each job?

    443.4 (i) is not commercial only
    "result in serious injury to, or loss of, human life, or"

    Buzz - do you mean "by a giraffe?" The giraffe is doing the kissing in this context, isn't he/she/it?

    The requirements defined by the IET & BSI are what carries weight, not a manufacturer's interpretation...
