Periodic Electrical Inspection & Report (PIR)- to BS 7671
DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE FOR ESTATE AGENTS & LANDLORDS
The IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) require that Periodic Inspection and Testing of electrical installations is carried out at such intervals as are consistent with the type of installation, its use and operation, the frequency of maintenance, and the external influences upon it.
Examples of maximum recommended initial periods between inspections are as follows:
Every 5 years
Every 3 years
At change of occupancy, or every 10 years
It is recommended by the Institute of Electrical Engineers, that buildings over five years old are subjected to a periodic inspection, and as a minimum should continue to be inspected and tested every five years; a report of inspection should be issued, together with test results and any recommendations.
Extent of the Work When entering into an agreement for electrical inspection and testing of a building under your control it is a fundamental requirement that the extent and limitations of the inspection and testing are fully described. It is recommended that the following be agreed prior to beginning the work, and we can assist you in determining your exact requirements for inspection and testing.
As it is neither practical nor possible to inspect all parts of an installation, we will agree a sampling process. This is normally in the order of 10%-20% of all accessories, fittings and control equipment.
For much of the testing the electrical system will be switched off. If this is a problem we can arrange the work at times when this is more convenient.
We will agree before commencing the work the amount of down time that can be tolerated and arrange a provisional program for switching off – totally, and individual areas or distribution boards if required.
Cost of the Work This will be largely based around the extent of the work as described above, and as such we cannot quote fixed prices for such variable possibilities. But to give you some idea of costs we would aim to complete a full Periodic Inspection, Test, and Certification of an average domestic dwelling house as follows.

Routine Electrical Inspection and Report-( sometimes known as Home buyers or sellers Report)
Electrical installations should not be left without any attention for the periods of years between formal periodic inspections. Also not everyone may require a formal periodic inspection; you may wish to choose a less comprehensive routine electrical inspection instead. Typically these are required in the years between periodic inspections to monitor for deterioration, or to assess condition before or after house purchase, or if you know the wiring to be relatively modern and did not require extensive testing.
The following is a list of what is covered in the inspection:
Main equipotential bonding
Supplementary equipotential bonding
Breakages or damage
Wear or deterioration
Security of enclosures
RCD trip times
Earthing (loop impedance) and Polarity of ring and radial socket circuits
On completion of the inspection a report will be provided, detailing the condition of the installation, results of tests carried out, any recommendations and conclusions as to the relative safety of the installation.
