Who Performs Electrical Inspection and Testing?

Who Performs Electrical Inspection and Testing?

In order for an effective electrical inspection and test of your premises, electrical inspectors must be competent, have a comprehensive knowledge of the type of system to be inspected, understand the nature of the business and the potential impact on that business. Additionally, they need to be able to identify serious defects, deterioration and non-compliances with current regulations. All electrical inspection and testing activities should have a scope of works identifying the extent of the inspection, the percentage of testing to be carried out, frequency and any agreed limitations.

To complement our electrical services we can also undertake thermography on your electrical distribution system.
