Electrical Inspections & PAT Testing in Leeds
Periodic Electrical Inspections- Electrical Condition Reports
Inspection and Testing is used to assess the condition of the electrics within a property. The condition of all electrical installations will deteriorate over time. They should therefore be tested and inspected by a competent Electrician at appropriate intervals to assess the level of deterioration, and whether this will have any impact on its safe use in the future.
These safety checks are referred to as ‘Periodic inspection and tests’ and the document which all findings are recorded an ‘Electrical installation condition report’. This is where the Electrician will detail all recorded findings and test results, and list any problems or issues. The report will be marked as either ‘satisfactory’ or ‘unsatisfactory’, in the case of the latter, necessary remedial work required to obtain a satisfactory result will be identified.
An Electrical Condition Report is a bit like an MOT for your electrics, sometimes work will be required to achieve a safe standard.
How often do Electrical Condition Reports need to be done?
Domestic properties every 10 years
Rented Domestic properties every 5 years
Commercial properties differ dependent on their use but typically 5 years
