Electrical Test and Inspection

Electrical Test and Inspection

All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use. They should therefore be inspected and tested at regular intervals to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use. Such safety checks are commonly referred to as ‘periodic inspection and testing’.

From June 2020, private landlords in England are required to have a periodic inspection carried out on the installations in their rental properties every five years.

Safe and Secure recommends that these checks are carried out wherever you live in the UK, to ensure the safety of your property and your tenants.

Once a periodic inspection has been completed, you will be issued with an Electrical Condition Report (EICR).

A periodic 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.
