Default Bathroom zones question

I recently had an EICR (electrical report) carried out on a property I rent out (as landlords have been legally obliged to do as of 1 April). I got a C2 fail on the basis of "BATHROOM LIGHT IN ZONE 2 IS NOT IP44".

The only lights in the bathroom are 3 downlighters in the ceiling. I'm not sure what the ceiling height is yet, but my understanding is that if it's more than 2.25 metres, then it's outside the zones and I don't need any particular IP rating - is that correct?

(There's actually a second failure point stating "AT RING MAIN CIRCUIT IT USED 40AMP MCB IS TO HIGH , AND HAS TOBE 32 AMP"... that one's really bizarre, as not only am I convinced - from memory - that a 32A MCB is fitted, because I installed the bloody CU myself 10 years ago, but I also have a Periodic Inspection Report from back then which states that it's 32A. So I'm looking forward to finding out for sure - but first I'd like clarity on the zoning issue...)


Electricians came round to quote on something and then it started -
illegal rcd, lights not waterproof in toilet etc etc etc.,

They were all total lies.

€œit should be clear by now to everyone that activist environmentalism
(or environmental activism) is becoming a general ideology about humans,
about their freedom, about the relationship between the individual and
the state, and about the manipulation of people under the guise of a
'noble' idea. It is not an honest pursuit of 'sustainable development,'
a matter of elementary environmental protection, or a search for
rational mechanisms designed to achieve a healthy environment. Yet
things do occur that make you shake your head and remind yourself that
you live neither in Joseph Stalins Communist era, nor in the Orwellian
utopia of 1984.€
