Essex Electrician ensuring safety through inspection

Reactive Electrical are qualified to undertake all aspects of inspection and testing. As a completely independent electrical testing specialist, we pride ourselves on our professionalism and our ability to be able to offer a high quality service.

Carrying out periodic inspections on your property’s electrical systems will provide you with peace of mind and an up to date status report of its condition. Knowing that your systems and equipment comply with the Electrical regulations and having a certificate of electrical safety is key to a safe home or business.

All inspections need to comply with the current Health and Safety Guidance and PAT Testing (for portable appliances) regulations. It is also a requirement under the IEE wiring regulations of 2004 that all electrical installations have certificates accompanying them.

Our engineers will carry out testing on the whole of your electrical system within your property, from the distribution board through to the socket outlets and light fittings. You will receive a periodic inspection certificate along with the schedule of the tests we have carried out. Any failures or recommendations will be noted on your certificate, and when they have been rectified and re-tested we will issue you a new certificate.


The certificates we issue are accepted by mortgage and insurance companies. We can also undertake inspections and surveys when buying or selling a property, whether commercial or domestic. When our engineers test your installations and electrical equipment, we will look for the following points:-
