Electrical Installations Conditions Report
All electrical installations can deteriorate with age and use, this could result in electrocution and/or fire. Therefore installations be inspected and tested regularly to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use. Such safety checks are commonly referred to as 'periodic inspection and testing'
A periodic inspection checks the condition of an existing electrical installation against British Standards BS 7671, the UK Standard for the safety of electrical installations.

Discover if electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
Identify potential electrical shock risks and fire hazards

Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding
For commercial premises it is recommended that an Electrical Installations Conditions inspection is carried out atleast every 5 years.
For homes of multi occupancy (HMO’s) The Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation (England) Regulations 2006 and the Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation (Wales) Regulations 2006 require that every electrical installation in an HMO is inspected and tested at least every five years by a suitably qualified contractor like ourselves, who can provide a certificate giving the results of the inspection.
