Electrical Inspection, Testing, Certification and Commissioning
Fixed Wiring Inspection and Testing
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 impose duties on employers and duty holders in respect of their electrical systems and electrical equipment. To prevent danger, such as electrical shock, fire and loss of life, all systems shall be maintained correctly.
A duty holder can demonstrate compliance with the regulations, in respect of their electrical installation, by having fixed wire inspection and testing carried out on their premises.
Not only can we provide testing and inspections, but we can also complete small installations, including testing and commissioning into service.
Fixed wire testing in accordance with Saudi Regulations involves the testing of electrical circuits and distribution boards. The wiring of each circuit will undergo a series of tests to ensure that the wiring is safe and that the circuit is wired correctly. Each circuit’s cable and accessories, including light switches, fittings, socket outlets and supplies to other fixed plant, will be tested and inspected for any damage, deterioration or dangerous conditions.
We will be more than happy to assist you with any fixed wire inspection and testing you require and will ensure that you are fully compliant with current regulations. Our aim is to keep you, your residents and staff safe from electrical hazards.
Periodic Inspection Explained
All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use. They should therefore be inspected and tested at regular intervals to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use. Such safety checks are commonly referred to as 'periodic inspection and testing'.
A Periodic Inspection will
Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards.
Identify any defective electrical work.
Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.
Tests are also carried out on wiring and fixed electrical equipment to check that they are safe. A schedule of circuits is also provided, which is invaluable for a property.
Periodic Inspection and Testing should be carried out only by electrically competent persons, such as Qualified Electricians. They will check the condition of the electrics against the Saudi Standard for the Safety of Electrical Installations.
At the end of the Inspection, an Electrical Installation Condition Report detailing any observed damage, deterioration, defects, dangerous conditions and any non-compliances with the present-day safety standard that might give rise to danger.
If anything dangerous or potentially dangerous is found, the overall condition of the electrical installation will be declared to be 'unsatisfactory', meaning that remedial action is required without delay to remove the risks to those in the premises
