Current legislation states that every electrical installation must be subject to initial and periodic audits in accordance with the methodology of ELOT HD 384.
The implementation of the ELOT HD384 standard has been mandatory since the 28th of February 2006. The ELOT HD384 standard defines and describes how the various audits are performed at the electrical installations.
The audits of electrical installations can be divided into the following three cases:
- Initial audit: must be carried out after the completion of the construction of every electrical installation, prior to the initial power supply, to verify that the requirements of the standard have been followed.
- Audit after extensions or modifications: it should be done after the completion of the relevant work and before the extension or the modified part of the installation is operational.
- Re-audit: should be done either at regular time periods, depending on the type of installation
