Just because a fuse holder says "100A" on the outside it doesn't follow that the actual fuse fitted is that size. I have seen plenty that are 80A in such circumstances. Getting it inspected (by view of the fuse itself) is the only sure way to tell.

Its definately 100A as i was told it by the soarkie who removed it when henley block was fitted and the DNO guy who also removed it when they changed the meter and put the seal back on. The EV charge point people also knew it was 100A according to the records thay have access to, which also tallies with the MPAN. So i would be surprised if it really wasnt after two visual inspections and it being on record as such. Also i wouldnt be eligible for the trial if it wasn't which is on behalf of the DNO so they have a vested interest in making sure we were eligible before accepting us on the trial.

[edit]Just got the certificate paperwork from cooker install when master house fuse was removed it that states primary supply as TN-S, BS/EN 1361, type II, rated current 100A and short circuit capacity as 33kA - hoping though that the particulars of installation at origin that shows max demand load relates to the cookers MCB - it matches. All work was done to BS7671/2008.

Sure that's Ok, as long as it is based on recent visual inspection of the fuse itself and not just the casing it is in or a label attached to it.

Good Morning All,

As the 12th January approaches I hope there will be no last minute headaches with the fitting of our 32A charge point...............
