Periodic Inspection And Testing Reports

Put simply, this report is based on the inspection and testing of all the electrical circuits and accessories in your electrical system.

Each circuits' cable and its accessories, (e.g. sockets, luminaires, switches, fans etc.), will be inspected for damage, functionality, wear and tear etc., and the wiring of each circuit will undergo a series of tests to make sure the wiring is safe and that the circuit is wired correctly. The report will also determine if items such as earthing, bonding and incoming supply are sufficient. All this data will be contained in a report we give to the customer.
