Default electrical installation test certificate template

I have just found out, that after working out how to rewire the house
and fit a new CU, I now have to test it. Not only that, I have to send
in a test report for the Inspectors to view (plus one copy for the
document dossier).

So, is there any kind person out there who is able to send me an
electronic version of a blank test certificate template - or something
similar, which would satisfy the building inspectors etc?

Thanks for your help.

What are you going to do with the blank certificate once you've got it?
What really matters is not the certificate, but the fact that the work has
been tested by a suitably equipped person who is competent to do so.

Sorry Mr Bryer,

I have all the gear - it's for my work on Zone 0 and Zone 1 hazardous
area electrical installations. Meters, Scopes, Meg's, LCR bridges etc.
etc. etc.

I will check the wiring out and fill in the forms myself - the
certificate is just to save me from having to design one myself, and
the inspector would like some continuity I'm sure.

Thanks,

Ren.

If you have all the test equipment and know how to use it then I am
surprised you don't know where to get the forms from. A selection
are available from the IET (formerly IEE) web site.

The BS7671 forms for filling in by hand and a pdf forms template for
computer entry are on the IET website

Mr Hansen,

Thanks - my line is in EEx 'e', EEx 'i' and EEx 'd' systems for process
plants - this house stuff is all new to me, but logical.

Ren.

randomly hit the keyboard and produced:

They're in the back of Approved Document P (have a mooch around
