BS7671 2008, Part P building regulations.

Common problem when you work with muppets who know nothing and are too thick skinned to take any advise.

Just ask them a simple question.

How do you conform to the regulations when a cable is buried in a wall less than 50mm deep?

If they go doh just as Homer simpson would then tell them thay need to comply or else they are just like all the other know it all cowboys.
