Electrical Installations to BS7671 & ET101
(Eighteenth Edition IET Wiring Regulations & Fourth Edition ETCI Wiring Rules)
We at Walsh Electrical Services carry out electrical installations of whatever scale and complexity to both the IET Wiring Regulations (also known as the IEE Wiring Regulations) and to the ETCI National Rules for Electrical Installations. Work in the north, e.g. in Derry, is carried out in accordance with BS 7671:2018 - the IEE Wiring Regulations - and work in the south, e.g. in Buncrana (including both Controlled Works and Restricted Works) will instead comply with ET 101:2008/A3:2018 - the ETCI Wiring Rules.
Please note that we must verify that the earthing and bonding arrangements for your installation are adequate for any alterations or additions to your electrical installation in your business or your home (no matter how small). If they are inadequate then this must be rectified as part of the work as these are essential for safety. We can also liaise with the Distribution Network Operator (DNO) or Distribution System Operator (DSO) as appropriate.
We are insured on both sides of the border, fully qualified and regularly assessed by the NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting) in the north as part of our enrolment in the Approved Contractor Scheme, and routinely inspected by RECI (the Register of Electrical Contractors of Ireland) in the south as part of our registration with the Safe Electric Scheme.
Change of Contractor
Should work in the south have been commenced by another contractor then please be aware that you will be required to apply to RECI (Safe Electric) for a Change of Contractor. No work can commence until we have received written approval for this request from the Register of Electrical Contractors of Ireland. Where the Change of Contractor procedure is initiated the electrical installation will in all circumstances also require an inspection by a RECI Inspector before a Completion Certificate can be issued. A cost is payable to RECI for this inspection, and as we are also required to attend the inspection a fee will also be payable to Walsh Electrical Services.
Our installations also comply with other relevant Standards and Regulations. Make an enquiry now!
Electrical rewires in Derry & Donegal
All electrical installations deteriorate with age regardless of how well they were originally constructed. This is true regardless of whether it is a workplace (Industrial or Commercial) or even a household (Domestic) installation. Should you require either full or partial rewiring then we can carry this out to meet your needs, and in full compliance with the relevant Wiring Rules/Regulations.
Smaller works such as additional lighting or socket-outlets, or the installation of smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors - or larger jobs including additional circuits (e.g. for an electric shower), or wiring for a new kitchen can also be delivered to the highest standard.
Distribution Board replacement in Donegal & Derry
If you need a new or replacement distribution board (including consumer units and fuseboxes or three-phase DBs) with circuit breaker or MCB protection and RCD protection as appropriate we can do this for you. SPD and AFDD protection can also be fitted as required.
DSO or DNO involvement may be required in addition to our work depending on the particular installation.
All work is certified upon completion on official NICEIC or RECI forms. Initial Verification (inspection, testing & certification of new work) is an absolute requirement of both the IET Wiring Regulations and the ETCI National Rules. (N.B. Every electrical installation should also be periodically inspected and tested, and a report on its condition obtained.)
Do not accept a quote from any enterprise which tells you that this is unnecessary or that it is something that they are unable or unwilling to provide.
We are also an Aico Expert Installer, Rointe Official Installer and a dealer for Infrared Heater Panels.
