consumer unit in bathroom??????

Postby chrisbarber615 » Wed Jan 27, 2010 10:28 am

i am living in a flat that has got a consumer unit and electric meter installed in a cupboard attached to the wall,

i am aware of the zones in a bathroom i.e no electrical items within zone 2 (within 0.6M of bath)

The consumer unit is outside of zone 2 by about half a metre, so is this ok or not?

please help.

regards chris

If you are saying that the electrics are in the bathroom and access is in the bathroom then no it is not OK.
