    I am sure you are right. So odd to give a ten year retest on 37 year old wiring!

    if the “uppers” are for residential let’s then the 5 year or sooner applies for retesting for this part of the property .

    We are not the immediate landlord, we have been pressing shopkeepers with "shop and uppers" to have these tests carried out and was really surprised that his part P electrician issued a certificate saying re-test in ten years

    Retest in 10 years is an issue for a landlord as the new legislation says Max 5 years

    and also the max Zs figures for the breakers is wrong too

    A surprise today, report comes back age of installation 37 years, but on inspection in good condition just a few C3s passed, retest in ten years

    Zs and/or R1+R2 have clearly been calculated, which is not in itself wrong, but shows lack of doing a proper job. The Insulation Resistance readings are clearly nonsense, as I guarantee he/she didn't get over-range readings on an occupied home. The ring final readings are exactly at a factor of 1.67 from live to cpc, also showing they have been "calculated" rather than measured correctly.

    I don’t have any contact with the tenant, it’s managed by an agent - suspect I’m going to have to make the journey to find out what’s actually going on, as now I’m being told the RCDs didn’t “work” at the time of the EICR (what chance all failing?)...

    Can’t you post a photo of said fuseboard ?

    Revisiting this - the CU is BS 3871, I can’t find the final invoice for the work but can I only assume it wasn’t replaced (unless the electrician was offloading his collection of old stuff). The problem now appears to be IP related - both top entry and cover...

    Both the original EIC and the recent EICR state the circuit breakers are BS 3871 - so this was definitely NOT fitted new as part of the rewire

    Looking forward to the photo

    Looking over the documents, the rewire was actually done in 2007, not 2010. The old fuse board was most definitely replaced then (as was everything else - the place was stripped back to a shell after not having had any work whatsoever done since the 1960s). Aiming to get a photo of the consumer unit.

    Theres something very odd going on here.

    BS3871 breakers were superceded by BS 60898 in about 1994 - so the "rewire" in 2010 doesn't add up

    Also the EICR suggests there is RCD protection but no test results

    VERY ODD


    Really need to see a photo of the fuseboard

    Also, can you post the schedule of test results from the EICR you have received?
