Testing and Inspection - continued
Recommendations for frequency of periodic inspections of electrical
installations vary, for domestic installations it is recommended that
they be tested at a maximum of every 10 Years. This however may be
reduced if the condition of the installation is deemed to be by the
engineer testing of an age or condition where more frequent testing
is required to ensure continued safety, or at change of occupancy.
Most commercial installations are recommended to be tested at a maximum
of every 5 Years. However buildings open to the public e.g. places
of entertainment, leisure complexes should be tested at a maximum
of every 3 Years and places identified as special locations e.g swimming
pools, caravan parks and marinas should be tested at a maximum of
every 1 Year.
