Do UK building regulations allow for micro-switch operated mains lights?
Both my under-stairs cupboard and airing cupboard have mains operated lights controlled by a microswitch on the door-jam. When the door opens the light comes on, when the door closes the light goes off.
Is this allowable under UK building regs? The wiring seems to have been done to a safe and sensible standard (all wiring safely enclosed, all components correctly rated) my only concerns are 1) is this legal and 2) if 'yes' are there any particular regulations that apply?
I've got very used to this arrangement and it's actually very convenient, my only minor concern is that there's no isolation switch, but maybe none is required?
