Electrical safety observations indicate varying levels of problems - they are coded C1, C2, C3, or F1.
C1: Danger Present, Risk of injury, immediate remedial action required
Items marked as C1 on an electrical safety report would be considered to be able to cause immediate harm or injury to a person (or persons) potential resulting in death. For example live cables exposed anywhere in a property or just poor quality DIY.
A C1 listed on an electrical safety report in London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridge would warrant an immediate failure of that inspection meaning the outcome of the report would be unsatisfactory. Any items found to be immediately dangerous during an electrical inspection (within reason) should be rectified by the electrician on site and charged as necessary.
C2: Potentially Dangerous, Urgent Remedial Action Required
Items marked as C2 in an electrical safety report are viewed to be potentially dangerous. It depends on the nature of the item that has been marked as a C2 as to whether the outcome of the report would be unsatisfactory.
In some circumstances items marked as C2 can be rectified on site (at an additional cost) to obtain a satisfactory certificate, this will avoid an unsatisfactory report being issued and other costs incurred for possible return visits.
C3: Improvement Required
Electrical safety report items marked as C3 do not comply with current regulation standards.
A C3 is not viewed to be dangerous but must be listed as a recommendation on the electrical safety report in London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridge. You can have a number of C3 items listed on your report and your electrical installation would still be viewed as Satisfactory.
F1: Further Investigation Required
F1 items include wiring that uses older colour codes, or circuits that are not verified at the time of testing.
