An electrical safety report will not be considered UNSATISFACTORY due to the presence of this issue alone. The inspection could have any number of C3 items and still be SATISFACTORY.
Electrical Safety First, who produce the Best Practice Guide 4 (EICRs), recommend this issue be considered a C3 – IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDED. This is a minor ‘technical defect’ which introduces no potential of danger. These items are mainly related to minor changes in regulations which have been brought in subsequently.
If you have been told your report is UNSATISFACTORY because of this alone, you should approach this with your electrician.
