General
Type of installation
Approximate age of installation

Evidence of additions or alterations.

If "yes", estimated age.

Consumer Mains

Identification of cable cores.

Current carrying capacity.

Voltage Drop.

Aerial installation conditions.

Connection of wiring.

Switchboards

Location. e.g. Not in restricted location, access and egress.

MEN connection Intact.

Basic protection against contact with live parts. e.g. insulation and enclosures.

Protection against the spread of fire.

Protection devices installed and suitably rated for over-current protection, arc fault protection and discrimination.

Connecting devices. e.g. earth bar, neutral and active links.

Connection and fixing of wiring and switchgear.

Identification and labelling of electrical equipment. e.g. switchboard markings and circuit identification

Protection against external influences. e.g. mechanical damage, effects of UV light.

Isolating devices e.g. main switches.

Fault protection (protection against indirect contact with live parts) by the use of automatic disconnection of supply. Check that the consumer mains have over current protection.

RCD's installed on applicable circuits.

Wiring Systems

Conductor Size. Check current carrying capacity and derating of cables.

Identification of cable cores.

Support and fixings.

Connections and enclosures. Check to confirm that cables are suitably terminated.

Overhead wiring systems. Check clearances from structures, vegetation and ground.

Segregation from other services. Gas, water, solar.

Protection against external influences. e.g. mechanical damage, effects of UV light.

Installation of cables in accessible areas of the ceiling space. e.g. near manhole, crossing roof battens and trusses.

Electrical Equipment

General condition of electrical equipment.

Isolation devices installed where required.

Down lights installed in accordance with AS/NZS 3000:2007.

Equipment installed as per manufacturers requirements.

Fixing and support of equipment adequate

Earthing conductors. e.g. size, identification.

Equipotential bonding conductors. Pool fences, water piping, slab reinforcing wet areas

Connection, joints and terminations adequate.

Protection against external influences. e.g. mechanical damage, effects of UV light.

Conductive building materials connected to earth where required. e.g. contact with single insulated cables.

Creation of an earthed situation that may require earthing of additional electrical equipment.

General Condition of electrical installation

Electrician:

Electrical safety check is carried out in accordance with AS/NZS Standards, we are not liable for any assessments carried out, or information contained within, as some installations will be applicable to previous standards.
Note: cabling that is contained within the fabric of the building has not been checked.
Approximately 10% of the electrical installation has been checked to give an approximate indication of the safety of the electrical installation
