In terms of protection against the ingress of moisture, there is no requirement for kitchens that I am aware of. For bathrooms, it is dependant on the zone, but generally IPX4 with 30mA RCD protection as a minimum for mains lighting in zones 1 and 2.

Sorry guys - they're in zone 2.

Also - do I need IP rated transformers if they're mounted ouside the bathroom, i.e. in the ceiling void?
