Electrical Inspection & Testing Sussex

Electrical Inspection Sussex and Electrical Testing Sussex.
Every electrical installation will deteriorate with use. Copper compresses over time and circuitry vibrates which can cause loose terminals and connections. Therefor it is wise to inspect and test them periodically to check they are safe and sufficient for continued use. This is what we call periodic inspection and testing.

Electrical Inspection & Testing Sussex

An inspection will detemine whether any of your circuits are overloaded, highlight any lack of earthing or bonding, check any non satisfactory and defective electrical work  and check if there are any electrical shock risks and fire hazards.

Inspection and testing should only be carried out by electrically competent persons, such as registered electricians in Sussex. Here at Carrick Electrical Ltd we will check the condition of the electrics against the UK standard for the safety of electrical installations, BS 7671 – Requirements for Electrical Installations (IET Wiring Regulations).

Carrick Electrical Ltd cover domestic, commercial and industrial inspection and testing. We also offer initial verification which is the inspection and testing of a new installation. Highly skilled in inspection and testing we are able to provide certification and advice on remedial works that may be neccessary.

Here are the following guidelines on how frequently buildings need to be tested.
