What happens if my installation fails the inspection?

We will only fail an installation if there is a risk of the appliance becoming dangerous or if the appliance or installation is an immediate danger to the life of the occupants of the property.There are alot of installations which are not installed to current standards these are just noted on the certificate but not failed. However if there is an appliance which fails, a warning notice will be given and the appliance labelled, turned off or with your permission disconnected if immediately dangerous. If we carry out the remedial work to make the appliance or installation safe for you we will not charge for the second certificate.
