Testing & Inspection is a legal requirement in the UK. Beyond regulation, frequent inspection of your electrical systems is a critical factor in day-to-day health and safety and productivity. At A.M.E Electrical, we assist you in meeting your legal obligations, and also provide periodic reports to provide peace of mind.

 

We are fully-approved NICEIC contractors. Our testing and inspection services cover the requirements all relevant regulations including Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing).

 

It is important to note that faulty or inadequate electrical installations can present major hazards. Regular inspections and compliance with legal standards can make all the difference between a healthy working environment and a catalogue of serious business problems. You can rely on A.M.E Electrical to keep you fully-compliant with current legislation and regulations.

When an Electrical Installation Condition Report should be considered

  • Most importantly to verify continued compliance with the Electricity at Work Act and Health & Safety regulations

  • Because all electrical installations deteriorate due to a number of factors, such as damage, corrosion, excessive electrical loading, wear, tear and ageing

  • On a change of ownership or tenancy of premises

  • On a change of use of premises

  • Because of any significant changes in the electrical loading of the installation

  • Where there is reason to believe that damage may have been caused to the installation

  • To comply with insurance company requirements. It could effect your insurance cover and may increase premiums if testing is not carried out

  • This report is a mandatory requirement for any landlord letting through any Housing Association or council. We highly recommend that landlords who have not had their electrical equipment tested within the last five years, to have one carried out. Statistics have shown that around 35 deaths and 4,200 accidents recorded annually in the UK involve electricity.

 

Our detailed report is accepted by banks, Insurance Companies, Councils and Health and Safety departments.

Should any landlord fail to comply with Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulation 1994 or Consumer Protection Act 1987, it is a criminal offence and carries a maximum penalty of £5000 and six months imprisonment. The tenant may also take you to court for damages as your insurance will not be valid.
