No, ClassII stipulates fixed mains lead, by cutting it off you create a detachable one. The reason is you lose the double insulation, I have always thought that this is primarily if someone makes a hole and puts in an IEC socket in the case (and yes I have found a couple of eeediots who did that). The inline socket doesn't violate double insulated I don't think, but I follow the words of the regs. Even without that it is stooopid thing to do.

That fixed mains lead can have any legal plug on it for the area or type of mains distribution.

Romac old dude, buddy, life long friend PLEASE start another mains cable thread with mandatory FUSE discussion. Tell us all about your intolerance and how they aid your digestion.

Strange how one's mind makes associations .....

Here in The Netherlands there is a cheap, popular brand of cooking margarine called 'Croma'.
