- Highlight lack of earthing
Periodic electrical inspections must be carried out at varied intervals depending on the building type and purpose.
Electrical testing and inspection should be carried out by registered electricians. They will check the condition of the electrics against the UK standard for the safety of electrical installations.

If your commercial property hasn’t had a Periodic Inspection for its emergency lighting within the last year or is due for an inspection call us today – your logbook could be out of date!
On completing or change of an emergency lighting system installation, an Emergency Lighting Test Certificate should be supplied to the occupier/owner of the premises. A copy of this certificate would be required by the enforcing authority.
A yearly inspection of your emergency lighting is required, and a new Test Certificate issued at intervals of no more than 1 year.
Electrical Installation Certificates (EICs) and Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificates (MEIWCs) provide you with a declaration that the new installation, alteration, or addition is safe to us at the time it was put into service. You should keep hold of all paperwork and certificates as proof of safety. They can also provide a basis for any further inspection and testing
