NICEIC ELECTRICAL CONDITION REPORTS:
Is your Westminster, W1 home electrically safe? Is it up to current electrical standards? Why not book in an NICEIC Electrical Condition Report which is similar to a MOT on a vehicle. So what is an NICEIC Electrical condition Report and what is involved:
All electrical set ups degrade with age and use. They will have to be inspected and tested at appropriate intervals to check whether they’re in an appropriate condition for continued service. Such safety checks are repeatedly referred to as ‘periodic inspection and testing.
A NICEIC Electrical Condition Report will:
* Monitor if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
* To find any potential electrical shock risks and fireplace hazards.
* Identify any defective electrical work.
Tests are also performed on wiring and fixed electrical apparatus to check if they’re secure. A schedule of circuits is also provided which is very important for a property.
How regularly is a periodic inspection required?
Your electrical wirings will have to be inspected and tested every:
* 5 years for a rented home if the property is in a suitable condition for continued use and
Periodic inspections or land lord certificates should also be performed when preparing a property for letting and before buying or selling a property which has been previously occupied.
Who will have to carry out the periodic inspection and what happens?
Periodic inspections can only be carried out by registered electricians. The inspection will take consist of looking at:
* The adequacy of earthing and bonding.
* The suitability of the switchgear and control gear.
* The condition of the existing fuse-board is up to standard and is fire rated. Has the electrical installation have RCD protection for additional protection.
* The type of wiring used and installed and its condition is suitable for continued use. There many cables that are now obsolete and are not suitable for today’s installation such as VIR (vulcanised India Rubber) Cable which potentially could be a fire hazard.
* Sockets that can be used to supply portable electrical equipment for outdoor use, ensuring they are safe and protected by a suitable residual current device (RCD).
* The presence of sufficient identification and notices.
* The extent of any wear and tear or other deterioration.
After the inspection, the electrician will then issue an Electrical Installation Condition Report containing any observed damage, deterioration or defects, and any non-compliance matters under the present-day safety standards that would cause a problem.
