Commercial and Industrial Electrical Condition Report
What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report?
An electrical installation condition report is, as its title indicates, a report and not a certificate. It provides an assessment of the in-service condition of an electrical installation against the requirements of the edition of BS 7671 current at the time of the inspection, irrespective of the age of the installation. Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and time. Therefore, if the safety of the users is not to be put at risk, it is important that every installation is Periodically inspected and tested by a competent person.
How often should I get one done?
It is recommended that a commercial property should be tested every 5 years and an Industrial premises should be tested at least every 3 years. (IEE Guidance Note 3 Table 3.2
As an NICEIC Approved contractor any report issued by A.N.Powell Electrical will be more than sufficient to meet the requirements of your insurance company.
What is the purpose of an Electrical Condition Report?
The main purpose of the Electrical Condition Report (Periodic Inspection Report, PIR) is to detect so far as is reasonable practicable, and to report on, any factor impairing or likely to impair the safety of an electrical installation.
What should I do when I get my Electrical Condition Report?
After you receive your Electrical Condition Report you should make arrangements to put right (as soon as possible) any reported problems that make your installation unsafe.
If a lot of work is needed (for example, where the installation needs to be rewired), we recommend that you get a quote for carrying out the work.
Finally, you should keep your condition report in a safe place, as it gives you, and anyone who may buy the premises in the future, a record of the condition of the electrical installation at the date of the report. It should also provide useful information if the premises is extended or improved in the future.
