Surely a socket spurred from the cooker circuit IS "an additional, separate single-phase power supply".

A spur off the cooker circuit would provide two supplies to the cooker.

The isolator is required because the manufacturer specifies it.

You are the only one too stupid to understand this.

That is NOT true. Any more that an unattainable 16A fuse is required in a FCU in the prievous example when the manufacturer specified it. MI are guidance only that have to be taken account of NOT followed blindly.

That is simply incorrect. You can not ignore MIs just because you are too thick to understand them.

They aren’t.

Certainly the ones that asked for a 16A fuse in a FCU were wrong.

And ones that say an isolator must be fitted are wrong because the regs do not require it. What they should say is: we recommend fitting an isolator for maintenance though it is not required in the regs.

They are not wrong. They require an isolator so you must fit one.

I realise you are too thick or belligerent to understand this.

I AM NOT THICK. The regs do not require an isolator so you don’t have to fit one, though you may if you like. MI do not over rule the regs.

The instructions and the regs must be used in conjunction with each other.

If the instructions are blatantly wrong, obviously you would use your judgement.

There is nothing WRONG with fitting a local isolator.

So if the regs DO NOT requirement one, yet the instructions DO, then you would have to fit one.

The regs are general guidance, they do not contain manufacturers instructions.

Agreed, but the MI do not over ride the regs.

Exactly, I've always said so.

Indeed if you want one.

So if the regs DO NOT require one, yet the instructions DO, then you would have to fit one.

No you don't. You could use your judgement as above.

The regs are general guidance, they do not contain manufacturers instructions.

True the regs are not statuary but they over ride the MI which are also not statuary and are sometimes wrong.

It's not about over-riding the regs, it is about working in conjunction with the regs and manufacturers instructions to get the best possible minimum compliance to satisfy both parties.
