Why take the City & Guilds PAT Testing Course?
Code of practice 5 speaks of the requirements under the Housing Act and guidance from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) that when accommodation is re-let, the electrical equipment will be classed as being supplied to that tenant for the first time, and should therefore be re-checked. Also note that the electrical equipment (safety) regulations 2016 state that when equipment is supplied as part of a furnished accommodation it is treated as hired/lease equipment requiring the products to be checked. These rules create an increase in work demand for the electrician when undertaking EICR’s as part of a planned system of maintenance.
