Recently quoted for a consumer unit upgrade for a little old dear, lighting circuit has no c.p.c's, she can't afford the lighting rewire, there are no class 1 fittings. Shes lived in the house 20 years and there are no apparent alterations whatsoever. I've read the ESC guide several times and I am not to worried about leaving the circuit be as I can't see her having any light fittings changed any time soon. However I am aware the house could potentially have new tenants within the next 10 years or so and that the correct labelling is needed on the CU. So after enquiring at the local wholesalers (where one of the guys can usually find me anything and everything) they can't get hold of any of the warning labels. Apparently the only people that produce them is the NICEIC and I am not a member. So does anybody know where I can purchase some labels?

I was going to use this job on my upcoming elecsa assessment but I wanted everything perfect and this has put me off!

Cheers.

I think niceic will sell them to you although you are not a member, just have a look on their website. Do elecsa not do them then? Otherwise have a search on Ebay, there are company's on there that do all sorts of labels,

Don't take this personally, but is it only me that wonders about having what appears to be a totally pointless DB change in a "perfect condition" ? whilst leaving installed a totally unearthed lighting installation approved by a registration body ?

I carry a stock of my own stickie specials, and blank ones for writing on. e.g. from Staples.

Or just print your own? Half decent labelling machines are reasonably cheap these days, or even print out from a PC onto a bit of glossy paper and attach with a bit of double-sided sticky tape?

A4 sheets of stick-on labels are available from Staples, they come in different sizes. Easy to print the sheets off using software for label printing. I use them for advertising etc., for sticking on DB's etc .

Labelling machines are time consumng at the coal face, and use expensive tapes in my experience. I have never used mine in earnest.

At a cost of only 17 pence per lable for the niceic ones is it really worth the bother of printing your own? Tbh the tight fistedness of some of you here amazes me!
