Testing and Inspection, Condition Assessment of Electrical Wiring and Systems

All electrical installations deteriorate with time and use. They should therefore be inspected and tested at regular intervals to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued safe use. Such safety checks are commonly referred to as 'Condition inspection and testing'. 
Once completed you will be issued with an Electrical Condition Report (EICR).

 

A condition inspection will:

  • Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
  • Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards.
  • Identify any defective electrical work.
  • Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.

Tests are also carried out on wiring and fixed electrical equipment to check that they are safe. A schedule of circuits is also provided, which is invaluable for a property.

 

How often is are condition inspections required?

Your electrics should be inspected and tested every:

  • 10 years for an owner-occupied home.
  • 5 years for a rented home.
  • 3 years for a caravan
  • 1 year for a swimming pool.

Other times when a condition inspection should be carried out are:

  • When a property is being prepared for letting.
  • Before selling a property or buying a previously-occupied property
