What is electrical installation ?

An Electrical installation is the construction or permanent installation of electrical wiring systems and electrical equipment configured to fulfil specific purposes. Installations covered by the scope of IET wiring regulations BS 7671 usually fall into one of three categories; domestic, commercial and industrial. Electrical equipment refers to any item used for such purposes as distribution, generation, transmission, conversion or utilization of electrical energy.

BS 7671 Requirements for electrical installations

BS 7671 Requirements for electrical installations (IET Wiring regulations) currently eighteenth edition are the regulations that apply to design, erection and verification of electrical installations. Installation such as; industrial premises, electric vehicle charging, floor and ceiling heating systems, construction and demolition sites etc.

The regulations are intended to be applied to installations generally but, in some cases they may need to be supplemented by the requirements or recommendations of other British or harmonised standards. Such cases include; explosive atmospheres – BS EN 60079, electrical apparatus intended for use in the presence of combustible dust – BS EN 50281 and BS EN 60079 and electrical installations for open-cast mines and quarries BS 6907 etc.

The regulations do not apply to installations such as; equipment of mobile and fixed offshore installations, electrical equipment of machines covered by BS EN 60204 and those aspects of mines specifically covered by statutory regulations etc.

Electrical installation certificate

Electrical installation certificate is an important document that should be issued upon completion of the verification of a new installation or an addition to an existing installation, including the replacement of a distribution board.

The certificate should include details of the extent of the work covered, and a schedule of inspection, and a schedule of test results. For a new installation, any defect or omission revealed during the inspection and testing should be corrected before the certificate is issued.

The certificate should be issued by the person or persons responsible for the design, construction and verification of the installation and should be issued to the person ordering the work.

Where electrical installation work does not include the provision of a new circuit or replacement of a distribution board a minor electrical installation works certificate is acceptable.

Model forms of the schedule of test results, schedule of inspections and certificates mentioned above can be found in appendix 6 of the IET wiring regulations BS 7671. A copy of the wiring regulations can be purchased on the official website of the institution of engineering and technology (IET).

Electrical installation condition report

Condition report is used for the purpose of reporting on the condition of an existing installation. The purpose of this report is to confirm whether or not the installation is in a satisfactory condition for continued service. The report should include schedules of both the inspection and the test results and should identify any damage, deterioration, defects and/or conditions which may give rise to danger.

A summary of the condition of the installation in terms of safety should be clearly stated. An installation which was designed to an earlier edition of the regulations and which does not fully comply with the current edition is not necessarily unsafe for continued use, or requires upgrading. Observations, if any, should be categorised using the coding C1 to C3 as appropriate. Any observation given a code C1 or C2 classification should result in the overall condition of the installation being reported as unsatisfactory.
