Question Electrical Safety Help

Hi all, I'm not an electrician at all, I need some advice from you specialists out there inline with the requirements of the new 18th Edition.

We install equipment on customers sites and I need clarification on the following if possible:

1. ECTs are completed - do these results have to be recorded?
2. IRTs we don't do - is there a legal requirement to have these done and record the results?
3. Is there a requirement to have written details of the presence of any RCDs which include the state and condition of any external earth bond. The RCDs are not provided by us but are provided by the customer to which we plug our equipment into.

Any help and direction of where legally this is stated will be appreciated.

You need to complete your profile including occupation and location per the terms of use of this site before we're allowed to advise you.

It seems you work for some kind of company installing some kind of something and you're reading the new 18th edition of something and it contains acronyms...

ECT and IRT mean nothing to me, but your use of the term “earth” instead of ground and the term RCD instead of GFCI indicates that you are not in North America. This forum has a section for the UK, don’t know if that’s relevant, but other than that this is not the right place for you. This is a North American based site, electrical systems and terminology is very different for is compared to the test of the world. Good luck.
