ETCI Periodic Inspection Reports (PIR)

Any type of electrical installation can deteriorate with age and use. It is recommended that electrical installations are inspected and tested periodically as appropriate to their use and environment to verify compliance with the National Rules for Electrical Installations – ET101.

How we complete a Periodic Inspection Report:
The comments/remedial work section on the form will outline any breach identified during the inspection and also give a recommendation on how to resolve the breach.

Following the completion of the periodic inspection and testing of an installation, a schedule of the following shall be compiled:

  1. All defects, damage, deterioration of equipment or wiring, and the potential hazards from any non-compliance with the National Rules for Electrical Installations.
  2. Recommendations for necessary consequential remedial works.

The REC shall use the numbering system (1-4 below) to indicate to the person(s) responsible for the electrical installation the recommended action to be taken.

  • Requires urgent attention.
  • Requires improvement.
  • Requires some attention.
  • Does not comply with the current National Rules for Electrical Installations*


* A non-compliance with the current National Rules for Electrical Installations does not necessarily imply that the installation inspected is unsafe. It does mean however that the current set up does not meet the current guidelines and should be addressed as soon as possible. PIR report failures can also affect your application to the local county council to accept your house as a long term rental so it is important you check this before you apply
