Part P Certificate

A Part P Certificate is required, with few exceptions any electrical work undertaken in your home such as the addition of a new electrical circuit or any work in your kitchen, bathroom or garden area must be notified to the Local Authority Building Control for inspection. By using a contractor who is registered with a Competent Persons Scheme such as ELECSA, the contractor will be able to self-certify that the work meets the required standards and that it has been notified to the local authority. You will almost certainly have to produce this certificate at a later date (when selling your house), so when it arrives, please keep it in a safe and secure place.

Periodic Testing  

 A Periodic Inspection is an inspection on the condition of an existing electrical installation, to identify (in order of priority) any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations.

Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and age. It is important for the person responsible for the maintenance of the installation to be sure that the safety of users is not put at risk, and that the installation continues to be in a safe and serviceable condition.

It is recommended that periodic inspection and testing is carried out at least every 10 years for domestic properties . During a periodic inspection we will check the electrical installation against the requirements of BS 7671 - Requirements for Electrical Installations ( IEE Wiring Regulations ) - as amended, which is the national safety standard for electrical installations. 

The periodic inspection will take into account all relevant circumstances including the following factors:

a) adequacy of earthing and bonding
b) suitability of the switchgear and controlgear
c) serviceability of equipment
d) type of wiring system and its condition
e) provision of residual current devices for socket-outlets that may be used to plug in electrical equipment used outdoors
f) presence of adequate identification and notices
g) extent of any wear and tear, damage or other deterioration
h) changes in use of the premises which have to led to, or might lead to, deficiencies in the installation.

We provide a periodic inspection report (PIR) as part of the periodic inspection.

A period inspection report (PIR) is a formal method of recording the findings of the periodic inspection.

The main purpose of a PIR is to report on the safety condition of an existing installation. It should describe the overall condition as either 'satisfactory', in which case no immediate remedial work is required, or 'unsatisfactory' which means remedial work is required to make the installation safe to use.

Where a PIR describes the installation as 'unsatisfactory', the next thing to look at is 'Observations and Recommendations for Actions to be Taken'. This is where any departures from BS 7671 are recorded, and a code to indicate the urgency of the action needed is given. These codes are ranged from 1- 4 with 1 being the most serious.
