I have often commented about the bad idea of earthing everything in sight, but this is slightly different. As OMS admits, this is not an unknown problem with metal studwork, and as it is all covered up there is much less downside of making a conductive environment and the consequent increased danger of shocks. Using cables with metal sheaths is all very well, as is bits of conduit inside the studwork, but both are somewhat inconvenient in otherwise T&E installations. This construction method seems to create a significant extra risk compared with traditional construction, because cable positioning is obviously critical to safety and cannot be inspected properly. Bonding to the local CPC would be very low cost and would not appear to have much downside in terms of additional safety, particularly if we have RCD protection as well.

If there was local bonding from the immersion heater local isolation switch terminals at the end point of the circuit to the metal stud with a broken CPC it wouldn't have achieved anything would it?
