Quite simply it is a statutory obligation in most cases. If your premises are open to the publicpubs,schools,cinemas,clubs,churches,
dentists,doctors surgeries etc then you most likely need to be inspected yearly. If you are a private dwelling then you should be tested at least every 10 years. Electrical testing is often overlooked by ignorance, many companies now delegate the responsibility to either their own resources manager or a dedicated company.

Niblock Electrical Services keeps a data base of all tests, when they were performed and the results,this way there is no ambiguity! As well as the electrical testing of the fixed equipment (cables,sockets,lights, etc) there is the testing of PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) simply put if it has a plug on it it has to be tested with a PAT tester. This is a requirement for all types of installation, Industrial,Commercial and Domestic. Home-owners wishing to sell their dwelling can use the same service to make the test results available to potential purchasers.
Below is a list of how regularly testing should be carried out
