An electrical inspection is conducted to ensure that electrical work meets minimum regulated standards.


Any person can make a written request to the Chief Electrical Inspector for a special inspection of an electrical installation.


The Chief Electrical Inspector may have an inspector inspect or reinspect any electrical installation at any location; or any electrical appliance, fitting, cable, cord or other electrical equipment intended for use, disposition or sale at any place of business.

Inspections are conducted on an auditing basis, according to risk priority. Specific requests for an inspection are subject to availability and may be subject to special inspection fees.
