Insurance Electrical Inspections
Most UK insurers insist that the bases of validity of a building insurance are that the premises are in good state of repair.
The compliance of an installation with BS7671 in its latest addition is established during an Inspection and Testing.
The document supplied by the inspecting/testing company is called Periodic Inspection Certificate (PIR). This document is the equivalent of an MOT and carries a unique serial number.
Failure to ensure that the premises are electrically safe, may invalidate the building insurance (besides putting the occupier of the premises at risk from electric shock or electrical fire).
The standard interval between inspections is 5 years, but there are exceptions (high risk or public premises such as bars, pubs, clubs) which will shorten the interval accordingly.
If you are unsure as to your duties, under insurance regulations, please contact your insurer and request further information (usually found in the small print of the policy).
