Electrical Installation Safety

At the beginning of each new tenancy, you should ensure that electrical installations – like fixed wiring – are safe and well maintained. Any electrical appliances you supply to tenants – like cookers and kettles – should be safe for them to use.

You should carry out regular inspections of fixed electrical installations – like sockets and light fittings – every five years. You should also arrange, at least once a year, for a qualified electrician to carry out a portable appliance testing (PAT) safety test on any portable electrical equipment you provide for tenants, like kettles. The PAT tester will give you a dated certificate and put stickers on the plugs of appliances to show that they are safe.

The Gas Appliances Directive sets out legal requirements that in future will apply across the European Union. Member countries are required to amend their existing legislation, or to introduce new legislation that conforms with the requirements of the directive.
