What happens in an electrical inspection?

Each electrical circuit in your house has a group of tests performed on them. The tests are as follows;
Continuity of CPC and bonding – This is to check that your protective conductors (earths) are electrically safe and correctly connected.
Continuity of ring final – Tests to ensure that there are no breaks or inter connection in any of the conductors/circuits feeding your sockets.
Insulation resistance – This is a test to measure the quality of the insulation between conductors (live, neutral and earth).
Polarity – A test to confirm that all live conductors are connected into live terminals.
Loop impedance – This test confirms the impedance of each circuit, which is used to calculate the speed a circuit will disconnect under fault.
RCD – If there is an RCD present in the installation it is tested to ensure it trips within the times give in BS7671 (electrical regulations).
Functional testing – To ensure that switch etc are working correctly.

“ We got our whole house rewired last year. He understood the requirements without effort and knew his technical bits. He provided his last job's telephone number for me to speak to which I did. Agreed on a price and time frame and work started as planned. Minor changes in work were gladly accepted. „
