Guys - In the pic (sorry it's pretty bad) a surface mounted cable is shown going through a wall and popping out the other side. The cable goes through the wall at 90 degrees to the surface and the wall is greater than 100mm thick. The cable is outside any safe zones and no accessories are involved. Once the cable is at a depth of 50mm no further protection is required BUT the cable will be at a depth of less than 50mm either side before it reaches the centre(ish) of the wall.

My question is does this breach reg 522.6.6 given that the cable is outside any safe zones and no accessories are involved? My thoughts are that only someone very stupid would attempt to drill around, near or into the hole the cable goes through as the cable can clearly be seen entering it as it's surface mounted but technically it's concealed. Unless it's covered with conduit maybe. But even so.

you don't have enough posts to post links, and it seems the link you posted does not work.

no pictures displayed, only links to hosting sites

From what you describe -

A cable going straight through a wall whilst being otherwise visible would not be classed as 'concealed'.
