PERIODIC INSPECTION AND TEST
OF ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS
Safety of our clients and their equipment is our first priority and as such we fully test all installations on completion however small. We offer an inspection and test, which is followed up with a report showing test results, items tested and recommendations for improvements. We carry out annual maintenance checks and portable appliance testing; fully recorded in a register, which is submitted after the initial test for your retention to monitor and compare future test results.
Periodic Inspection and Testing is necessary because all electrical installations deteriorate due to a number of factors:
• Damage • Wear and Tear • Corrosion • Excessive Electrical Loading
• Ageing • Environmental Influences
Legislation requires that certain electrical installations are maintained in a safe condition and therefore must be periodically tested.
Inspection and Test should be considered if:
It is a requirement implied by
• Licensing Authorities • Public Bodies
• Insurance Companies • Mortgagors and Landlords.
Additionally, to assess compliance with the current IEE Wiring Regulations.
On a change of ownership or tenancy of the premises.
On a change of use of the premises.
After alterations to the original installation.
Because of any significant change in the electrical loading of the installation.
Where there is a reason to believe that damage may have been caused to the installation.
