I recently replaced a consumer unit, upgraded bonding, replaced metal light fittings on a house with no lighting cpc's. When filling in the Electrical installation certificate there is a check box under 'fault protection' for 'presence of circuit protective conductors'. On the NICEIC ones you can only put a tick or N/A. Since neither is applicable does anyone know what you would do here?

Put n/a in the R1+R2 and Zs boxes on the lighting circuit line of the test results page and a note in the "comments on existing installation" box. Put the appropriate label on the c/unit, that's as much as you need to do for a c/unit change,

Thanks Dave, I've done that in the test results but what about the schedule tick box?

Tick that as ok because your comments will cover that one circuit that's not earthed,

Basic point here is that you're only certifying the work you've just done - as you've not installed the circuits lacking c.p.c.s you're not certifying them - just your work to re-connect them and sufficient proof that you've not made any non-compliant parts of the overall installation less safe than they previously were. As Dave says, the "comments on existing installation" box is the place to explain any oddities.
