Periodic Inspection and Testing

All electrical wiring and installations deteriorate over time and to ensure their safe use in the work place, regular inspection and testing should be completed to check that all your electrical equipment is in a satisfactory condition for use by you and your employees in the workplace.  These inspection and testing safety checks are commonly referred to as ‘periodic inspection and testing’.  Each time your business completes its periodic inspection and testing, you will be issued with an Electrical Condition Report (EICR).
