Is it acceptable to run final circuit cables in the same containment as sub main cables.

If not can anyone refer me to the reg that states this as I cannot find it anywhere.

Many thanks

It is acceptable - there is no regulation to prohibit the practice.

Many systems of installation don't do it but that's down to the practicalities of things like swa and conduit/trunking - if you want say sub mains and final circuits in singles drawn into trunking then thats OK



Failure is always an option
