Been asked to do a Test and Inspection on a shop in a large shopping center so they can have a COC. The shop is just a single phase fuse board with a 10 or so circuits in it, no problem. The shopping center will not let have access to anything before the fuse board in the shop. I can only test whats in the shop. As long as I note this on the COC that the Certificate only covers the shop fuse board and not anything before it, am I ok. Sorry to ask daft questions but testing I fully understand but the certificates I used in the UK had a section for "limitations" in that its reasonable to say that you can't shut down the whole shopping center to check a main incoming fuse if its not visible or that you want to shut down the main DB so you can work on it safely to do a test on one submain. As long as this is noted, am I covered? I know in Section 3 it says Description of installation covered by this report, If I state in that section that only what I mentioned above, DB, equipment and circuits in the shop are covered is that acceptable. Am I covered. The other information (type of earthing TNS/TNC-S they can be provided by the Maintenance guys at the shopping centre(that fact will be noted too). I know your going say "no, you should test the lot" but you have to realistic. I can't shut down large sections of a shopping center. Advise. I'm all for doing thing correctly but like I said you have to be realistic. I won't put my name to anything I can't check. Thoughts?
