Visual Inspection


  • Basic protection (protection against direct contact with live parts), e.g. insulation and enclosure.

  • Fault protection (protection against indirect contact with exposed conductive parts), e.g. by the use of automatic disconnection of supply, double insulation or isolating transformers.

  • Protection against spread of fire, e.g. penetration of fire barriers.

  • General condition of the electrical equipment, e.g. signs of damage that could impair safe operation, disconnection of unused electrical equipment.


  • Location, e.g. access and egress.

  • Protective devices, e.g. selection and setting of adjustable protective devices for compliance with overcurrent protection, arc fault protection and discrimination requirements.

  • Isolating devices, e.g. main switches.

  • Connecting devices, e.g. neutral bars, earth bars and active links.

  • Connection and fixing of wiring and switchgear.

  • Identification and labelling of electrical equipment.

  • Protection against external influences.

Wiring Systems

  • Conductor size, e.g. current-carrying capacity and voltage drop.

  • Identification of cable cores.

  • Adequate support and fixing.

  • Particular installation conditions, e.g. underground, aerial, safety services.

  • Protection against external influences, e.g. enclosure.

Electrical Equipment
