Should it have passed ?

(Besides the HSE notice on page 13 of the Blue Book, for those wanting an actual regulation, refer to page 237 and reg 651.2, note 2: "Existing installations may have been designed and installed to conform to previous editions of BS7671, applicable at the time of their design and erection. This does not necessarily mean that they are unsafe.")

Does the installation not just need to meet the regulations that were current at the time of install? I bet very few houses have Metal CUs.
Surely a no brainer.
Just think how many plastic boxes are out there under stairs etc.
I would doubt if this change to metal would be retrospective
The workload involved simply not being feasible.

It doesn't meet current regulations, but there is no requirement for it to meet them.
If you want to spend a few hundred pounds on work that's not needed, your tenants might think other improvements would be more worthwhile.
