When I issue a COC, I know every electrical point that is on that installation has either been repaired and working or removed completely. whichever the client deems best for their pockets. Now that would be the RIGHT way to do a good job in my opinion.
But I've seen people just issuing COC's where I can clearly see no work has been done. Extractor fan still on the same switch as the light and both don't work, half the lamps in the house are out, burnt plugs. Am i just too fussy with issuing my COC's and losing work because of it? Or am i right?
As i see it. to issue a coc, all light points and plug points etc etc should be working before issuing the COC.

The first words on the definition on point of consumption is point of outlet.

That includes light fittings and socket outlets.
