the Danish safety technology authority states that of particular focus on installers, who have previously made been errors in the reports.
Approximately half of the 500 supervision is based on past experience, while the other half relies on randomly selected installations.

According to the Danish safety technology authority, it is not unusual that there not only be given the grades at the high end of the scale.
- When we do checks, we often find something that can be done better. Therefore, it is important that we continue to make checks and make note of where that should be corrected.
- But even if we find a number of reports, that is not true, there are fortunately only a few reports where we need to make clear to those who have done them, that they must do their work better. In most cases we can confine ourselves to come up with observations and provide guidance on what should be done differently in the future, says Søren Assenholt Muff, head of department at the Danish safety technology authority, to Bolius.
in Order to explain the scores have Bolius asked the Danish safety technology authority come up with examples of deficiencies in the electricity report, there has got grade 4.

the Naming of the space was not appropriate, you could have much doubt about which space there is believed That was missing two rooms in the basement, there were 9 physical space in the report, but the 11 spaces on the site There was no consistency between what you have listed as separated, and the reality. For example, had been listed in a room that the switch and outlet were separated, but there was only the switches in the room at Least one switch had a defective casing, which was not noticed in the report There were several errors right around electricity board, which was apparent, but not noted in the report. Including a loose cable, fix the seams in the sleeves outside of the tavlekapslingen, loose collection of samlemuffe outside of the lamp, and a lamp that was missing the lampshade and thus the enclosure There were several exterior lamps, missing lamp shade and thus the enclosure. This was very evident but was not reflected in the report.

When you, as a future homeowner reads a report through, it is important to first read the entire basis for the report and then the report itself carefully.
- Is there anything you are in doubt, you may in the first instance, contact another electrician to see if he sees serious issues in the report. If there is, one must take its own installer with out and look at it, so you can get an overview of the scale, says Henry Bishop.
If you receive a defective el-report stuck between the hands, you should first complain to the company that has produced it.
In the worse cases you can go through the complaints Board for Technical Installations, there is a private tribunal constituted by installationsbranchens organization, TEKNIQ, the Danish Consumer council Think and Parcelhusejernes in the Dark.
