    What is a periodic inspection?

    A periodic inspection is an inspection on the condition of existing electrical installation to identify any deficienciess against the national safety standard for electrical installations. and inspection will:

  • Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment is overloaded
  • Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards in your electrical installation
  • Indentify any DIY electrical work
  • Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding and adequacy
  • Why is a periodic inspection necessary?

    Every electrical installation will deteriorate over time with use and age. The NCC recommend these tests to be carried out every 3 years. This is necessary to maintain the installation in a safe serviceable condition.

    What happens during a periodic inspection?

  • All plugs and sockets checked for polarity(including hook up cable)
  • Continuity of protective conductors(including hook up cable)
  • Earthing and bonding(from inlet to main earthing terminal to chassis and gas pipes.
