I have found this in the same part of BS7430;

"The bonding connections to the water and gas pipes
should be made as near as possible to their point of
entry into the premises. If there is an insulating
section or insert at that point, the bonding
connection should be made to the metallic pipes on
the consumer's side of the section or insert."


Same poor practice as 544.1.2

It continues:

"The main equipotential bonding connections to the
main water pipes should normally be on the
consumer's side of the stop tap"


Why?

"but connection on the
Water Authority's side of the stop tap is acceptable,
as long as there is satisfactory electrical continuity
across the tap
."


It doesn't inspire confidence, does it?
