Why do I have to have electrical testing performed periodically?

The Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) produce guidance note 3 which incorporates 17th edition IET wiring regulations to BS7671. Section 3 of the guidance covers Electrical Periodic Inspection and Testing.

Periodic Inspection and testing is required because an electrical installation will deteriorate over time due to a number of factors such as; damage, wear and tear, corrosion, excessive electrical loading, ageing and environmental influences.

Guidance Note 3 states that a frequency of periodic inspections should be established, taking into account the type of electrical installation, the type of use, equipment used, the maintenance regime in use, and the environment.
