Sounds typically ridiculous! While I'm here, the Statutory Instrument (the only legal part pertaining to electrical installations) got varied a while back. This means you can do a whole load more without notifying Building Control.
Still be wary of zone one in bathrooms, new circuits and stuff outside (summary).
Constantly wary of the postcodes changing when working the border between NSW & QLD, at least in Blighty I know which rules I'm breaking... Ha!?!
