A customer has hived off half of their office space.

Their DBs now exist in locked office space they don't have access to.

My thoughts are (other than they should have thought about it before):

1) They should arrange a key for access

2) They should move their DBs

Neither (1) nor (2) being thought about, my thoughts are that EAWR should make them think about it.

Am I correct in this thought?

[edit] I should clarify: They used to lease a whole floor of an office block, then have now relinquished half the space to another company, with a different letting agent to themselves. Most of the 9-5 time both offices are open, but at other times they may be using their offices when there is no access to their DBs [/edit]

132.9 & 132.10 are applicable.
No doubt there are others further on in the book.

If everything has switches / plugs and sockets, there may be an argument that there does not need to be access to the DB, as everything can be turned off/unplugged, but then you have the lighting, which cannot be disconnected from the supply completely, so I would say there should be access to the DB at all times the building is occupied.
