An Electrical Installation Condition Report and test in Garforthincluding about 30% of accessories removed for visual inspection willtake at least 3 to 4 hours for and average 3 BED HOUSE. Then another 2hours to fill in certification and report. Any one who says they willinspect 100% of accessories is most likely lying so will probably alsobe cutting corners on the testing. And anyone doing this work for lessthan £100 is NOT doing it properly. This work should cost about £100 –£110 for a sole trader or £150 – £190 for a larger company but will varydepending on how much time is needed on site. Basically as with mostthings in life, “you get what you pay for”. Unfortunately a lot oflandlords just want ‘a piece of paper’ at the least cost. I’m afraidthat with the advent of part ‘P’ and all these ‘Testing specialist’companies springing up there are a lot of cowboys about. Stick to aregistered person or company (you will then have comeback if a problemoccurs)

Electrical Inspection & Testing Garforth
There is little point in setting up Regulations to control the way in which electrical installations are designed and installed if it is not verified that they have been followed.
For example, the protection of installation usersagainst the danger of fatal electric shock due to indirect contact isusually the low impedance of the earth-fault loop; unless this impedanceis correctly measured. this safety cannot be confirmed. in this casethe test cannot be carried out during installation, because part of theloop is made up of the supply system which is not connected until workis complete.
In the event of anopen circuit in a protective conductor, the whole of the earthed systemcould become live during the earth-fault loop test. The correct sequenceof testing would prevent such a danger, but the tester must always beaware of the hazards applying to himself and to others due to hisactivities. Testing routines must take account of the dangers and bearranged to prevent them. Prominent notices should be displayed toindicate that no attempt should be made to use the installation whilsttesting is in progress.
