Just a note that may interest some users, the cables used in the hager CLIK system do not currently carry BASEC approval....

Thankyou...

To be fair I'd not looked at them that closely but we use loads. Is it a case of not marked or not approved ?

As I understand it Stu, they source cables from several sources - not all of which are BASEC approved

Interesting,

Maybe I'll go back to buying the bases and getting the guys to cable them on site. At least that way we know the cable is good (although the terminations might not be )

Thinking about it a bit further.

Hager are selling us a complete "unit" which I'm thinking is sold as complying and meeting the relevant product standards. Surely they've got to issue a recall if the cable doesn't comply.

Stu, making them up for yourself on-site sounds ok to me and i'd probably do the same if I needed to but there are people on here that seem to think it's a crime to use a different manufacturers mcb so how would they feel about using different makers internal cables?

a cable doesn't need BASEC approval to be compliant with it's product standard - BASEC is a third party certification, effectively

That's true OMS, but I'm probably safe to say we all prefer to use basec cables as it tends to ensure they've actually got some copper in them.
