    Hi guys,
    Flat in spain ( but no difference as far as i can see) Bathroom Light fitting has 3 wires brown L blue N green ( checked on other lights connected in other rooms) so looking to set up 4 LED down lights ip65 built in drivers.
    Using 1.5 twin and earth joining earths by Junctions and terminating in a single junction box taped as per pictures, no lights yet!
    All wires in place holes drilled etc .
    Its a floating ceiling easily accessible by moving plaster tiles to gain access.
    May tie wrap cables up once all in place as ive read they need securing?
    As this is still an existing circuit not a new one does it need signing off ?
    Any thoughts would be appreciated
    Thanks

    No idea of the rules in Spain regarding new or existing circuits, not do I know if a spark can “sign off “ work s/he did not do. They can’t normally in the U.K. though. When you say twin and earth do you mean UK stuff with a bare earth lead? If so it is almost certainly non compliant in Spain.

    In the Spanish store its marked as 1. 5
    Is twin with an earth! The earth though is sheathed as in the photos.
    I'm asking as I don't want to finish off if there are problems later on.
    A spark could finish this in half an hour when the lights are here, so maybe that may be the case or as its an existing circuit I'm hoping to be ok to finish it off
