Within the BS7671, Regulation 621.1 states that...
"where required, a periodic inspection and test of every electrical installation shall be carried out in accordance with regulations 621.2 to 621.5 in order to determine as far as reasonably practicable, whether the installation is in a satisfactory condition for continued service".
This regulation is related to those electrical installations that are neither new or altered. In these cases, there is a need for periodic electrical inspection and testing to be carried out.
This will include an initial visual inspection followed by a more thorough inspection and testing procedure.
Once this work is completed, an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) will be issued.
These are certificates that must be kept by the “person ordering the work” (the owner) and the “competent person” (the qualified electrician) after the electrical inspection, and testing procedures have been completed.
If you need any of these tests being carried out, our recommended electricians will be able to assist.
