Commercial Electrical Installation Standards


Complying With Legislation or Policy Cover

If you run a business or get revenue from a commercial venture you'll need to be aware of some points relating to the condition of your electrics and electrical appliances.  Having the necessary electrical inspection certificates may be the difference between being legal or having an insurance claim paid out.


Insurance Companies will only pay out for third party liability claims and only if the Electrical Installation has been properly maintained by an NICEIC approved Electrical Contractor.

A Periodic Inspection is required every 2 years as prescribed by BS 7671.  What's more all Portable Appliances need to be PAT Tested annually with credible records for proof.


Landlords are required by law at the change of each tenancy or every 5 years, which ever comes sooner to have carried out a full Periodic Electrical Inspection of the property by an NICEIC approved Electrical Contractor. Also all Portable Appliances ie: kettles etc need to be tested annually.  Once this has been completed the approved electrical contractor will forward the relevant electrical testing certificates as record of proof.


Caravans which are rented, need to have the electrical installation tested annually by an accredited NICEIC Electrical Contractor. To comply with Insurance Companies guidelines A Leisure Vehicle Electrical Certificate will be issued as record of proof.Commercial Electrical Testing Meter
