5 year fixed wiring inspections

The frequency of periodic wiring inspection routine checks and testing is determined by taking into account the type of installation, its use and operation, the frequency and quality of maintenance, as well as the external influences to which it is subjected.

Fixed wire inspectionsMost business establishments, which include shops, offices, cinemas, restaurants, theatres and hotels must have a routine wiring check on a yearly basis, though some establishments such as educational facilities and leisure complexes are less than that. This is the minimum requirement.

However, the maximum period between inspections and testing is between 3 and 5 years depending on the type of establishment and business.

In compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989, all work activities and rented accommodation must take precautions to avoid the risk of death or personal injury.  

By carrying out testing and inspection at regular intervals, deficiencies in your electrical systems can be identified and dealt with immediately, meaning that a problem does not persist undetected which may eventually result in fire or injury.
