There area also other times when a periodic inspection is recommended, theses are;

What will you receive?
On completion of the periodic inspection you will receive an Electrical Installation Condition Report detailing any observed damage, deterioration, defects, dangerous conditions and any non-compliances with the present-day safety standard that might give rise to danger.
