Periodic Inspection Testing and Condition Reports

Portable Appliance Testing and Periodic Inspection Testing

The Health and Safety ay Work Act (1974) set out legislation to ensure that electrical equipment and appliances are tested regularly. This applies to appliances which can be used by employees, the public in places such as schools, hospitals, shops or other areas to which the public have access. Testing also applies to equipment that is hired, supplied, repaired or serviced.

We can test appliances and equipment in commercial properties and our testing complies with British Standard 7671.

An Electrical Condition Report

(Formerly known as a Periodic Inspection Report)

An electrical survey, known as a Electrical condition report will reveal if electrical circuits are overloaded, find potential hazards in the installation, identify defective DIY work, highlight any lack of earthing or bonding and carry out tests on the fixed wiring of the installation. The cost of a typical PIR should start around £100, depending on the size of your property. The report will establish the overall condition of all the electrics and state whether it is satisfactory for continued use, and should detail any work that might need to be done.

T & M.E. Jackson can test your installation, issue a satisfactory certificate or in some cases a list of remedial work and costs in all types of buildings. Whether you are the proprietor, landlord, employer or just someone responsible for Health and Safety. With the knowledge that all our testing is carried out by qualified electricians, our reports are acceptable by the major insurance, mortgage and letting associations and in most cases a NICEIC report is the only one they will accept.

The frequency of the inspections depends on how the building is being used. If you're not sure when yours needs to be tested, please give us a call.
