Mi Charge Electrics will issue an Electrical Installation Condition Report, showing any noted damage, defects, deterioration, dangerous situations and any non-compliances with the present-day British Standard that might give rise to danger. We will also automatically present a quotation listing the correction work required.
An Electrical Condition Report should be carried out by a Qualified Electrician carrying the right City in Guilds Qualification, (City in Guilds 2391), which is the Test and Inspect qualification.
It is important that the Inspection covers all aspects of Inspection and testing to make sure the Installation is safe for use.
