Periodic Inspection Reports

Electrical installations naturally deteriorate over time, which makes regular safety checks essential in avoiding any potential risks. West Country Electrical specialises in carrying out professional, in-depth periodic testing and inspections on all types of commercial installations, completing every investigation according to BS 7671 standards. Our comprehensive PIR testing includes the checking of:

  • The condition of the wiring system.
  • Electrical earthing and bonding.
  • Appliance and equipment serviceability.
  • Control and switchgear suitability.
  • Wear and tear.
  • Existence of and requirement for residual current devices.
  • Increased or changed pressure on the installation.

Following the inspection, we will provide you with an electrical installation condition report (EICR) stating the condition of your electrical installations. It will also detail the action that needs to be taken to rectify any unsatisfactory findings.
