Electrical Safety First has weighed in on mandatory electrical safety checks in the public rented sector.
“Electrical Safety First is extremely concerned the government has not yet provided a time-scale to implement these checks, particularly since it announced its intention of doing so last year.
“It is essential the government provides clarity in relation to electrical inspections in the private rented sector, both in terms of timeline and how these inspections will be enforced.
“We also want to emphasise the importance of ensuring that the enforcement body is funded sufficiently to undertake its work effectively and the importance of using a competent, qualified and registered electrician to undertake such checks.”
