Electrical installation audit

Be certain that your electrical installation is safe to use

Electrical installation audit is a legal obligation

According to the law, the condition of an electrical installation must be checked if you want to start using a new electrical system with a main circuit breaker of at least 35 amps.

After a certain period, regular or extraordinary audits of the electrical system are required, depending on the type of building and the year of construction.

An audit is also required to obtain an authorization of use for the building.
