Just wanted peoples opinions on what would be classed as a domestic (household) property. Obviously most are relatively clear cut but others are not.
It is my understanding from articles in the past that (household) was added to the regulation and that for non combustible consumer units due to the fact other domestic style properties may not be included in the regulation such as care homes, hotels etc.
My main reasoning for the discussion would be workers accommodation within a commercial environment. Would RCD protection be required on lighting within a bedsit or flat style environment within say a pub, farm, hotel etc. Would this change dependant on whether the accommodation was for sleeping as shift workers over permanent residence for a worker.
Now its not really an issue since on a new install I would install RCD protection anyway and on an EICR lack of RCD protection on lighting would reasonably only receive a C3 coding. I just haven't been able to find any real list let alone a more definitive list on what counts as household.
I have recently seen reports for some circuits feeding accommodation only on pubs, the accommodation is only for workers, the circuits are primarily fed from the commercial boards within the pub but some reports have an observation recorded for the lack of RCD on lights as a C3 and some have not and sparked my interest in what others would record. (Some have C2 for lack of RCD protection on this and various other circuits but I would deem that over-coding)
If this has been discussed previously and someone can point me to the post or any articles relating to this from trusted sources it would be appreciated.
