Consumer unitPeriodic Inspection Report

This is an electrical survey that includes visual inspection and testing. It looks for evidence of overloaded circuits, potential hazards in the installation, defective DIY work and highlights any lack of earthing or bonding. The report will assess the overall condition of the installation and point out identified defects.

The IEE recommend that the maximum period between Periodic Inspection Reports is:

These intervals should be reduced if the installation is in poor condition or subject to wear and tear.

NICEIC bookThe Law

Lettings – all portable and fixed wired electrical appliances must be tested by a competent person and conform to the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994, mandatory for rented properties since 1997. The Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 requires that the electrical installation is safe when the tenancy begins and that it is maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy.

Work Place – there is a statutory duty of care under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 for all electrical installations in work places to be maintained, so as to be safe and to prevent danger. It is likely that in the event of an accident the authorities will look to BS7671:2008 IEE Wiring Regulations as the benchmark for standards.

Home Sale / Purchase – as from the 6th April 2009 the Home Information Pack contains a property information questionnaire. Question 12 is ‘when was the wiring in your property last checked'. A Periodic Inspection Report or a Visual Service Check & Report would assist the process.
