As with most things, electrical installations deteriorate with age and usage. It's therefore important to ensure that the electrical installations in your property remain in a safe and servicable condition. If you're a landlord, caravan owner, domestic or commercial property owner, having your electrical installations checked at regular intervals ensures that anyone entering or using your property are not put at risk.
Periodic electrical inspections check the condition of an existing electrical installations against BS 7671, the UK Standard for the safety of electrical installations. Our periodic inspections will:
Discover if electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
Identify potential electrical shock risks and fire hazards
Find any defective electrical work
Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding

Electrical Installation Condition Reports
An electrical installation condition report is, as its title indicates, a report and not a certificate. It provides an assessment of 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.
The main purpose of an electrical installation condition report is to detect so far as is reasonably practicable, and to report on, any factors impairing or likely to impair the safety of an electrical installation.
The aspects to be covered include all of the following:
Safety of persons against the effects of electric shock and burns
Protection against damage to property by fire and heat arising from an installation defect
Confirmation that the installation is not damaged or deteriorated so as to impair safety
Identification of non-compliances with the current edition of BS 7671, or installation defects, which may give rise to danger
To ensure the safety of people entering your property, a full test of the fire alarm system should be carried out every 6 months. The fire alarm test is to be carried out by a competent person in accordance with BS5839 part 1 section 6. Once the test has been completed, the outcome will be recorded in the log book and if passed, you will receive a fire alarm certificate that will validate you for a further 6 months.
Just like fire alarm systems, emergency lighting systems must be properly tested, maintained and serviced and this is a legal requirement under BS5266-1.
