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’.
Every Property owner must have a valid Periodic Inspection Report in order to comply with Regulation 89(b) of SI 299 2007 as amended by SI 732 2007. A Periodic Inspection Report is valid for 5 years in a Commercial Property.
Periodic Testing involves the inspection, testing and certification of the installed electrical circuits within your premises. Initially we carry out a visual inspection and then we use our electrical installation test equipment to ensure results are within Electro Technical Council of Ireland regulation guidelines.
Who should have a Periodic Inspection Report done?
- Landlords or Letting agents re-letting a property or to satisfy their insurance company by way of a safety audit
- Private tenancy organisations before moving a new tenant in, this is the same for City councils & Social housing
- Estate agents selling homes or members of the general public selling privately
- Commercial properties
- Places of entertainment
- Schools & Hospitals
- Any property being sold before final sale
- Any person or business who wants to identify the state of the electrical installation at their property
McAuliffe Electrical will carry out a visual examination of all the parts of the installation readily accessible and take all test measurements required under the National Wiring Rules. A report will be submitted to the Premises Owner, which will detail all aspects of the installation and will also list any remedial work, which should be undertaken.
