I have never filled out an EIC for anything other than a whole installation but, on this occasion, i'm just adding a new circuit to a special location. Can anybody tell me if I have to do a complete test of all the existing circuits or can I just fill out the EIC with the new bits? Any help greatly appreciated.

The EIC is just for the new circuit - other than observations on the existing installation, the EIC shouldn't deal with any existing circuits etc.

Why would you certify that for which you have no responsibility ?

This is how I do it,in box 2 make sure you describe exactly what work your responsible for and on the schedule of circuit details and test results I fill out the full circuit numbers insert my new circuit as normal with existing circuits either "circuit not tested" or "spare" with rest of boxs with a line through them ( easy and neat with computer software ). Makes it nice and clear for anybody following what number of circuits were there at time of certification.

Remember to tick the addition box while a new circuit it's not a new installation

I knew it must be a simple thing, thank you.
