    What a pity that Jonno80 does not reside in New Zealand! He could then look-up the New Zealand "OWNER/OCCUPIERS ELECTRICAL WIRING WORK IN DOMESTIC INSTALLATIONS" to see that which he could do in a country which operates with the same "Standards" as Australia but is not so constrained by "restrictions", imposed - for the possible "benefit" of certain "organisations". Of course, while in New Zealand an "Owner/Occupier" is allowed to do certain things, it is then required that these...

(The latter is basically that which Jonno80 wrote, but he added a few necessary caveats.)
