What is an Electrical Inspection?

Electrical Inspection RichmondAn electrical inspection is the process of an electrician performing a series of tests and inspections on the electrical installations within a property. This electrician will need to be fully qualified and registered to sign off your electrical inspection as valid with the appropriate authorities. An electrical inspection will typically last around 3-4 hours, but it depends on the size of the property being inspected and the number of circuits that need testing. Upon completion of the electrical inspection, you will be presented with an electrical installation condition report (also known as an electrical certificate).

During the electrical inspection, the electrician will test and inspect:

  • For any safety concerns or deviations from electrical standards such as loose or damaged cables.
  • The electrical circuits and equipment that should have appropriate protective devices in place.
  • For any defectives within the installations or any potential health and safety risks or fire hazards.
  • The water and gas main supplies within the electrical installations for the appropriate earth bonding that should be present.
  • For any electrical circuits or equipment that could be overloaded.
