Electrical inspection and testing

All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use. It is extremely important that they are inspected and tested at appropriate intervals to insure whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued service. The purpose of periodic inspection and testing is to determine whether the installation is safe for continued use. All electrical installation work in the UK is carried out to BS 7671 the Requirements for Electrical Installations. We produce our Napit Periodic Inspection Reports in compliance with these regulations.

A periodic inspection will:

  • Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
  • Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards.
  • Identify any defective electrical work.
  • Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.
