    Table 54.7 in BS7671 says that when the protective conductor is the same material as the line conductor (S), it must at least be the same size as the line conductor.

    Why does 1.5mm² T&E not comply with this reg when you have 1.5mm² line conductors and 1mm² protective/CPC conductor!?

    Can some one explain, my guess table 54.7 does some how not apply to T&E cables.

    Regards: Elliott.

    Table 54.7 is the fail safe option.

    Read 543.1.4.
