Electrical Installation

Periodic inspection and testing of electrical installations (often referred to as fixed wire inspection and test) is a statutory responsibility for every UK workplace, and these responsibilities are laid out in the UK’s 1989 Electricity at Work Regulations. Low voltage electrical wiring, sockets, circuits, mains panels and distribution boards can deteriorate over time or can be damaged, so inspection and testing involves rigorous visual and electronic procedures to ensure the compliance of your workplace with statutory responsibilities.

In order to ensure compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations (1989) all electrical Installations need to be maintained in a safe condition and therefore must be periodically inspected and tested by a skilled person. In fact it is recommended in BS 7671 2008 as amended (Regulation 135.1) that every electrical installation is subjected to periodic inspection and testing.

An Electrical Installation Condition Report certifies the in-service condition of an electrical installation against the requirements of the edition of BS 7671 current at the time of the inspection, irrespective of the age of the installation, detecting and reporting any factors impairing or likely to impair the safety of an electrical installation. As an Electrical Installation Condition Report is intended to be a factual report on the condition of an installation and not a proposal for remedial work, each recorded observation will describe a specific defect, omission or item for which improvement is recommended. Observations detail what the situation is, not what is considered necessary to put it right.
