Safe Electrical Certification
The Electricity Regulation Act 1999, as amended, makes it mandatory for a Registered Electrical Contractor (REC) to issue a Completion Certificate for all electrical works (excluding minor works). If a REC carries out minor electrical works they must be certified if requested by the customer.
It is through this certification system that Safe Electric, can monitor and validate that the electrical works completed meet the required safety standards (National Rules for Electrical Installations).
Periodic Inspections Reports for Commercial and Domestic
Electrical installations can deteriorate with age and use. It is recommended that electrical installations are inspected and tested periodically as appropriate to their use and environment to verify compliance with the National Rules for Electrical Installations – ET101.
Please be mindful that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) is a report and not a Completion Certificate. A PIR is intended to identify the condition of an electrical installation, be it good or bad.
Registered Electrical Contractors (RECs) shall carry out periodic inspection and testing in line with the National Rules for Electrical Installations.
The REC must provide a copy of their PIR accompanied with the completed Test Record Sheet to their customer and explain the next steps required of the customer to bring the installation in line with the relevant standards.
