Role of utilities

The network distributor can play an important role in obtaining our goal: a safe domestic electrical installation. They can help implement the inspection schemes, put in place by the authorities, by requiring that a positive report or a certificate of the installation be issued before connecting the installation to the public network.

They can refuse to connect an electrical installation to the network as long as there is no such proof of a safe installation (report or certificate) stating that the installation is fully compliant with the applicable standards.

They can carry out random inspections on their customer’s electrical installations and if they come across unsafe installations, they can disconnect them from the public network.
