Electrical Installation Condition Report - Cover Sheet

Post by terry gray on Fri Apr 20, 2012 6:37 am

In my travels around the region undertaking A/C assessments, a lot of contractors ask my opinion about the use of Electrical Installation Condition Reports - in particular what should they do when a client asks for a so called 'clean report' for insurance or other purposes? Firstly, I tell them that they should not be dictated to by the client about what they should, or should not record on the document, as its purpose is to faithfully detail every defect found in an existing installation. They then go on to ask if they undertake remedial works at the same time as the periodic inspection can they issue a clean report?

Having given this matter some thought, I felt that there was a compromise to be made in the form of a cover sheet I've called a Declaration of Conformity' - please see draft sample below. This idea is not a new one and has been discussed before at NICEIC H.O., but for some reason kicked into the long grass!

The idea of using this document is to confirm that the electrical installation is in a SATISFACTORY condition following remedial work for which appropriate Minor Works or Electrical Installation Certificates have been issued. These documents can then be bundled with the report together with the Declaration of Conformity on top stating the electrical installation is now deemed to be in a safe condition. This document has been used by some of my contractors who think it is a very useful. A draft version of the document below is also currently under consideration by the NICEIC technical panel a copy of which is available on request

Hi Terry yes I get the same query regarding remedials etc and 'clean' PIRs etc can you email the document to me so I can take a look?
What I have been saying to the contractors I visit if this is raised is to recorde the observation and code it accordingly and then right RECTIFIED after the observation as this is then a recored of the defect and the fact it has been repaired correctly then the PIR could state satisifactory
