What will be in my report?

Some of the most important features of an electrical condition report include:

  • If any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
  • If there are any electrical faults or if any electrical work carried out at your property is defective.
  • If there is a lack of bonding or earthing which could cause dangerous electric shocks.
  • Tests on wiring, fixed equipment to check if they are safe.
  • A schedule of circuits which is invaluable for a property

Who should carry out the inspection and what happens?

Periodic inspection and testing should be carried out only by electrically competent persons such as registered electricians. They will check the condition of the electrics against the UK standard for the safety of electrical installations, BS7671-Requirements for Electrical Installations (IEE Wiring Regulations).

The inspection takes into account all the relevant circumstances and checks on:

  • The adequacy of earthing and bonding.
  • The suitability of switchgear and controlgear. For example an old fusebox with a wooden back, cast-iron switches, or a mixture of both will need replacing.
  • The serviceability of switches, sockets and lighting fittings. Items that may need replacing include: Older round pin sockets, round light switches, and cables with fabric coating hanging from ceiling roses to light fittings.
  • The type of wiring system and its condition. For example, cables coated in black rubber were phased out in the 1960's. Likewise cables coated in lead or fabric are even older and may need replacing (modern cables use longer lasting pvc insulation).
  • Sockets may be used to supply portable electrical equipment for use outdoors, making sure they are protected by a suitable residual current device (RCD).
  • The presence of adequate identification and notices.
  • The extent of any wear and tear, damage or other deterioration.
  • Any change in use of the premises that have led to, or may lead to, unsafe conditions.

The competent person will then issue an Electrical Condition Report detailing any observed damage, deterioration, defects, dangerous conditions and any other non-compliances with the present day safety standards that might give rise to danger.

If any dangerous or potentially dangerous condition or conditions are found, the overall condition of the electrical installation will be declared 'unsatisfactory' meaning that remedial action is required without delay to remove the risks to those in the premises.
