Why EIRC or periodic inspection needed?

Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and age. It is important for the person responsible for the maintenance of the installation to be sure that the safety of users is not put at risk, and that the installation continues to be in a safe and serviceable condition, as such, regular electrical inspections in Denton must be carried out.

Who should undertake EIRC?

EIRC should be carried out by a competent electrician.

What happens during EIRC?

The electrician will check the electrical installation against the requirements of BSi7671 – Requirements for Electrical Installations ( IEE Wiring Regulations) – as amended, which is the national safety standard for electrical installations, and contains around 850 Regulations.

Electrical inspections in Denton will take into account all relevant circumstances including the following factors:

Suitability of the switchgear and control gear e.g. consumer unit e.g. an old fusebox with a wooden back, cast-iron switches, a haphazard mixture of such equipment is likely to need replacing

Serviceability of equipment e.g. switches, socket-outlets and light fittings e.g. older round pin sockets, round light switches and braided flex hanging from ceiling roses to light fittings, black switches, sockets mounted in skirting boards may require replacing.

Type of wiring system and its condition e.g. cables coated in black- rubber, black-rubber was phased out in the 1960s or cables coated in lead or fabric are even older and may need replacing (modern cables use PVC insulation)

Provision of residual current devices for socket-outlets that may be used to plug in electrical equipment used outdoors

Presence of adequate identification and notices.

The extent of any wear and tear, damage or other deterioration

Changes in use of the premises which have led to, or might lead to, deficiencies in the installation.
The electrician will provide a periodic inspection report (PIR) as part of the periodic inspection.
