Electrical Inspection & Testing
We are equipped and accredited to provide Electrical Inspection & Testing services, including final Certification & Reports. Here is an overview of what the requirements are and how we ensure you are compliant.
What Electrical Testing and Certification is required and why?
There are 3 main occasions where Electrical Testing is required:
At Electrical Installation
Firstly, every new electrical installation requires a qualified electrician to complete a full inspection and testing procedure. This is needed to comply with BS 7671, Regulation 610.1. Once completed, we provide you with the Electrical Installation Certificate.
Following Electrical Alteration
Secondly, where there is a change to an existing electrical installation, a Minor Electrical Work Certificate is completed following testing.
As a Periodic Review
Finally, The Electrical Condition Report is used for Periodic Inspection and Testing on existing electrical installations. This document replaces the old Periodic Inspection Report which is now not in use.
Mayo Electrical Services are able to provide Electrical Inspection, Testing and Certification services for all of these scenarios.
How frequently is an Electrical Inspection carried out?
Most standard workplace environments, including rental accommodation need an Electrical Installation Condition Report to be produced at least every 5 years. There should be routine inspections conducted at least annually.
For Rental ‘Student’ Accommodation, it is recommended that testing be carried out with a change of tenant in case installation condition has declined over the previous tenancy.
The frequency of periodic inspection and testing should take into account:
– the type of installation
– its use and operation
– the frequency and quality of maintenance
– the external influences to which it is subjected (such as weather)
We can advise on the right testing frequency and approach based on the installation you have.
What accreditation is needed to issue Electrical Certification?
We hold the C&G 2391 qualification and are registered with and accredited by NAPIT for inspection, testing and certification services.
NAPIT verify annually that we are performing these services in line with current guidelines. 18th Edition Wiring Regulations certification has also been attained, to ensure we are always complying with the current regulations.
