Here is an explanation of bonding conductor that have to comply with the British Standard BS-7671
Electrical bonding is the practice of intentionally electrically connecting all exposed straneous metallic items like water pipes or gas pipes not designed to carry electricity in a room or building as protection from electric shock. If a failure of electrical insulation occurs, all bonded metal objects in the room will have substantially the same electrical potential, so that an occupant of the room cannot touch two objects with significantly different potentials. Even if the connection to a distant earth ground is lost, the occupant will be protected from dangerous potential differences.
When replacing a fusebox, Our electrician will need to check the existing bonding is up to standard, upgrades will add to the cost.
