Can a regulations boffin please clarify the interpretation of ESR74A clause (2). The clause reads...

\'...if an installation or part installation was disconnected from a power supply while the PEW was done...\'

So does this only apply to installations that were actually disconnected from a power supply? Or should it be interpreted as also including installations that have never been connected to a power supply? New installations in other words. I\'m thinking the latter interpretation is correct, so that this clause and regulation encompasses both types of work?

Yes you are correct in thinking the latter applies i.e. restoring or connection of a power supply you would have to create an ESC.

It is worthwhile noting that the ESR allows us to \'consolidate\' or combine an ESC and COC.
