Hi

Would somebody be so kind as to quote me regulation 702.55.1 and 418.3 please.
I do not have an up to date bible at the moment and am desperate to read these regs.

Thanks

I'll start with 418.3 (702.55.1 is a bit long for my fingers at this time of night).

418.3 Electrical separation for the supply to more then one item of current-using equipment
Where the measure is used to supply two or more items of equipment from a single source, a warning notice complying with Regulation 514.13.2 shall be fixed in a prominent position adjacent to every point of access to the location concerned.

NOTE: Electrical separation of an individual circuit is intended to prevent shock currents through contact with exposed-conductive-parts that may be energized by a fault in the basic insulation of the circuit.
