4.2.4 COP 07, Requirement of earthing system

The primary requirement of the earthing system is to ensure effective operation of the circuit
protective device. For effective operation of the circuit protective device, the resistance of the
earthing system shall be as low as possible. In installations where RCDs are used as the
circuit protective device, earthing resistance of less than 10 Q will generally ensure effective
operation of the RCDs. However earthing resistance of less than 1 Q is the target.

(a) the wall or part of the wall shall be constructed or provided with a vertical damp proof course so as to be
impervious to moisture from its base to a height of not less than 150 millimetres above the surface of the ground;
(b) an additional damp proof course shall be inserted in the wall or part of the wall at its base.
(5) Where the floor or any part of the walls of a building is subject to water pressure, portion of the floor or wall
below ground level shall be waterproof.

123. Pipes and Service ducts

(1) Where ducts or enclosures are provided in any building to accommodate pipes, cables or conduit the dimen-
sions of such ducts or enclosures shall be-
( a) adequate for the accommodation of the pipes, cables or conduits and for crossings of branches and mains
together with supports and fixing; and
(b) sufficiently large to permit access to cleaning eyes. stop cocks and other controls there 10 enable repairs,
extensions and modifications to be made to each or all of the services accommodated.
(2) The access ,openings to ducts or enclosures shall be long enough and suitably placed to enable lengths of
pipe to be installed and removed.
Sewerage and Sanitary System

hands, dishwashing, and other purposes. Sinks have using water to flush it through a drainpipe to
taps (faucets) that supply hot and cold water and another location for disposal, thus maintaining a
