Reports of Examination
Many service companies do provide an inspection service, however a little investigation can often reveal that their inspection does not allow you to comply with current workplace regulations. This may leave you open to prosecution, or at the very least heavy criticism from the HSE or any other Statutory Authority.
Fixed Wiring Examinations - BS 7671 (Latest revision)
Most, if not all places of work use electricity as a form of motive power as well as heating and lighting.
BS 7671 (Latest revision) clearly state that a Periodic Inspection and Test should be carried out at specified regular intervals.
The above standard is a non-statutory document and as such is non-enforceable, however the Electricity at Work Regulations is statutory and they require the installation be adequately maintained.
Periodic Inspection and Testing is considered to be part of this maintenance.
It is recognised that removing the electrical power is not an option due to the operational requirements of our customers, therefore we carry out unique and almost bespoke inspection and testing tailored to our customers’ operations whilst maintaining compliance with the relevant provisions of BS7671.
One of the fundamental requirements for a Type A Inspection Body is demonstrable evidence of impartiality and independence, meaning that Inspection Network Limited have absolutely no vested interest in carrying out remedial works, in other words, Inspection Network Limited is a fully autonomous and independent company.
As a Type A Inspection Body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service all our electrical inspectors hold the relevant qualifications, and are subjected to regular and frequent competency monitoring.
