Electrical Installation Condition Reports

Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and age. It is critical to maintain these installations to ensure that the safety of users is not put at risk and that installations remain in a safe and serviceable condition.

It is recommended that Electrical installation condition reports or periodic inspection and testing is carried out at least every: 5 years for commercial properties.  This can either consist of a 100% inspection every 5 years or broken down to rolling programme of 20% inspections every year. Using the latter method ensures that the installation is checked once a year for faults.

Our Electricians will check the electrical installation against the requirements of BS 7671 - Requirements for Electrical Installations (IEE Wiring Regulations) - as amended, which is the national safety standard for electrical installations.

Our report will include:

  • NICEIC Registration number as an approved contractor

  • Details of the client and installation

  • Extent and limitations of the inspection

  • Supply characteristics and particulars of the installation

  • Schedule of items inspected and tested

  • Schedules of circuit details and test results

  • Summary of the inspection and test

  • Observations and recommendations for actions to be taken

  • Signed declaration by RG & MF Sadler Electrical


Emergency Light Testing:

Emergency Lighting is a legal requirement in all premises where people are employed.  It is a Life Safety System and is required to guide the occupants safely out of the building to designated meeting points in the event of an emergency, e.g. power failure or fire.

It is not only the lighting that is mandatory but also the correct signage; this is over looked by my companies.

It is a mandatory requirement to comply with:

  • BS 5266-1:2005 Code of practice for the emergency lighting of premises

  • The Building regulations 2000

  • The Fire Precautions (workplace) regulations 1997

Items to be tested

The emergency lighting system installed in your premises is required to be inspected and tested at the following intervals:

  • Daily

  • Monthly

  • Annual

RG & MF Sadler (Electrical) Ltd. offers inspection and testing services for 6 monthly and annual periodic tests. These are carried out for the full rated duration of your emergency lighting system, normally 3 hours.

During this test we ensure the correct operation of the emergency lighting system, the correct location of the fittings and that the correct signage is in place.

It is normal practice for the daily and monthly tests to be carried out by your in-house maintenance staff.



Fire Alarm Testing

The inspection and servicing should be undertaken by organisations with the appropriate competence. This can be assured by the use of organisations that are third party certificated.

Periodic inspection and testing
