Electrical installations can deteriorate with age and use. It is recommended that electrical installations are inspected and tested periodically as appropriate to their use and environment. Such safety checks are commonly referred to as ‘ETCI periodic inspection and testing.
The HSA recommend that installations should be tested as follows:
Residential 5 Years
Commercial 5 Years
Retail / Offices 5 Years
Leisure complex 3 years
Industrial 3 years
An ETCI periodic inspection may be required by your insurance company, Local authority or fire officer and even with out being requested, it is good practice to have an inspection test carried out by a safe electric registered contractor to establish the condition of your electrical installation regularly.
A ETCI Periodic inspection will determine whether or not the wiring installation is safe and meets the current wiring regulation standards
As Safe Electric registered contractors we are authorised to carry ETCI periodic inspections in all Domestic and commercial installations. We can also provide a quotation for any remedial works that may be highlighted by the report to make the installation safe and up to current regulations
