Inspections

The Western Australian Electrical Inspectors (WAEI) don't complete inspections of all electrical work. Our inspection system depends on a number of factors including the sample rate of the electrical worker and the type of work completed. 

If your installation is subject to inspection, a qualified electrical inspector will often attend within a few days but it can be up to 3 months after completion of the work.  

No. Unfortunately were unable to complete inspections on request. Inspections are subject to our sampled inspection system, when new electrical work is completed and a Notice of Completion is submitted.

A licensed electrical contractor can complete an inspection of your electrical installation and provide advice. 

If the electrical contractor believes your electrical installation is unsafe, they’re required to make the installation safe and report the installation to Western Power. Minor defects don’t need to be reported.

Please call the National Electrical Communications Association on (08) 6241 6100 or Master Electricians on 1300 889 198. They’ll be able to help you find an electrical contractor near you who can visit your property.
