The Electricity at Work Regulations stipulate that all fixed electrical items within a commercial building are required to have an electrical inspected and testing every 5 years. These tests are often referred to as a Periodic electrical inspection, or Fixed electrical testing.
As the name suggests, this type of testing refers to electrical items that are fixed and permanent within your business premises. This includes plug sockets, lights, extractor fans etc. The process for a periodic electrical inspection involves a visual inspection, followed by specialist electrical testing procedures.
Annual periodic electrical inspections
It is good practice to ensure all electrical circuits are tested annually within the building. This can highlight any possible hazards, which can then be rectified, helping to avoid any potential dangers.
