In the meantime, until it is clarified in the COP, we need to be clear with customers about the scope of tests the we are performing. We need to be clear, by consulting with the customer, and based on our capability (or not) to test such equipment as covered in this thread. The onus is then on the customer, to either commission tests as appropriate or to employ someone else who has the capability to perform the required tests.

I agree ringer, but find many customers have no understanding of the subject and find it difficult to make decisions like that. They are more likely to choose the cheapest option, that's why the cowboys who just do a visual inspection (if that) and stick a label on, continue to get away with it.
If the people interested enough to contribute to this forum can't even agree, some more guidance is needed. :?

I guess that as a minimum an In – Situ Test Earth Bond and In – Situ Touch Leakage Test could be performed. At least the equipment earth is tested!
