Well thats what i thought but since it is clasified as a major works since i am removing a circuit surely there must be some record kept of the work undertaken.

make a note on DB schedule etc that circuit is removed. and thats about all you can do. after all, if its not there anymore, you cant document it being there. bit like going to a house and finding there is a cert to say there isnt a shower circuit wired....

i dont removing a circuit would be any use for assessment. i could easily take assessor to any house and say 'i removed a circuit. cant show you because its not here anymore, but the proof is the board label does have a circuit crossed out'

mate check with the body you want to register with. Most of them you can do work on the house or flat that you live in for your assessment.
