Preface to Practical Guide to Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations PDF Book


Part P of the Building Regulations came into effect on the 1st of January 2005. This part of the Building Regulations requires that all electrical work carried out in domestic installations now has to be certificated.

For work places, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require that they provide a safe and well maintained electrical system.

Certification and well kept records are a perfect way to confirm that every effort has been made to ensure that the system is, and remains safe.

I have written this Practical Guide to Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations book to assist electricians of all levels in carrying out the inspecting, testing and certification of all types of electrical installations.

It will also be invaluable to City and Guilds 2330 level 2 and 3 students, electricians studying for City and Guilds 2391 parts 101 and 102 and all tradesmen who are required to comply with Building Regulation part P.


Step by step guidance and advice is given on how to carry out a detailed visual inspection during initial verifications, periodic inspections and certification.

Text and colour photographs of real, not simulated installations, are used to show the correct test instruments.

Step by step instructions for how to carry out each test safely using different types of instruments are given along with an explanation as to why the tests are required.

In some photographs safety signs have been omitted for clarity. All test leads are to GS 38 where required. Some comments within this Practical Guide to Inspection,

Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations book are my own view and have been included to add a common sense approach to inspecting and testing.

Interpretation of test results is a vital part of the testing process. The correct selection and use of tables from BS 7671 and the On Site Guide are shown clearly.

Any calculations required for correct interpretation or for the passing of exams are set out very simply. An in depth knowledge of maths is not required.

I have included questions and example scenarios, along with answers and completed documentation. These will assist electricians at all levels whether they need to pass an exam or complete the certification.

During my time lecturing I have been asked many questions by students who have become frustrated by being unable to reference definitive answers.

Within this Practical Guide to Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations book I have tried to explain clearly and simply many of these difficult questions.
