Electrical Installation Condition reports (landlord/safety certificates)

 
MJE Electrical can offer urgent inspections and our  Swansea electricians have the latest certification in testing and 17th Edition BS7671 2011.


What is an electrical installation condition report?

Sometimes rephrased as electrical safety check or landlord certificate.The inspection is a series of tests to make sure your installation continues to conform to the national safety standards. On completion of the inspection it will-

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

Tests are carried out on the fixed wiring and equipment to insure that it is safe. On completion a schedule of circuits will be provided this describes each circuit installed in the property.

How often is a condition report required?  

  • 10 years for a home
  • 5 years for a business or rented property

Why is a condition report needed?

Electrics can deteriorate over a period of time and should be checked at regular intervals

What tests are carried out during the report?

  • Continuity of earthing conductors
  • Continuity of ring final circuit conductors
  • Polarity check
  • Installation resistance
  • Earth loop impedance
  • RCD Trip tests

The electrical condition report is carried out on circuits at the consumer unit. Our domestic electrician will then inspect various points around the property including (light fittings,sockets , switches) with a visual inspection and instrumental test. The supply characteristics are  tested to ensure a good earth (ZE) and a fault current path(PSC). These tests verify the circuit has earth path to each fitting and that the RCD operates within the specified time and current.
