|Inspection and testing of electrical installations is carried out for a number of reasons however, one paramount reason is to ensure the safety of people, property and animals. Many insurance companies are now insisting that inspection and testing is conducted on fixed wiring installations in accordance with the recommendations laid down in BS7671:2008 and Guidance Note 3.

Repairs and installation work are carried out using marine grade cable (not domestic) due to the additional stresses of the moving vessel and the marine environment. Again our survey and testing can be conducted as part of a purchase survey.|
|Portable Appliance testing is
carried out annually for the majority of electrical items, with low risk
items such as computers extended to 2-4 years. All items are

passed on in report format, providing peace of mind that the equipment is
safe for continued use.
