8. Defence in Law Should There be a Breach of EaWR 1989

Your electrical installation should always be ‘maintained safe at all times’ in accordance with Regs 4(1) & 4(2) of EaWR 1989. Whilst undertaking your testing programme and employing a managed remedial service as outlined above in item 6, clients can demonstrate continuous monitoring and maintenance of the electrical system, with current and historical records. All of which is available on TraQ-it.

Certified evidence of corrective action, integrated with testing records throughout your testing programme will ensure you have
current, accurate, consolidated records with a version history of all changes to the electrical installation. Once this is achieved, an alternative approach for the next cycle of testing is available under paragraph 69 of EaWR 1989 called “Effective Monitoring”.
