Wiring and Grounding

It is your responsibility to ensure that your electrical wiring meets the requisite standards after constructing or purchasing a building. For this, you will need the services of a certified electrician.
 
It is also necessary to have regular checks/inspections of the wiring to ensure that the requisite standards of safety and service are maintained.

All wiring and electrical equipment shall conform to the regulations within the laws of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Electricity Regulation (Chap 288) and the IEE Wiring Regulation 16th Edition.  The frequency of inspection will vary with the type of installation. If alterations or additions are done to your building it is your responsibility to have the wiring of your building re-certified.
 
To ensure the continuous protection of your electrical equipment, you should have your grounding and internal wiring checked by a certified electrician at least once per year. For example under certain conditions, a poor state of wiring and grounding can lead, not only to damage to equipment, but to building and personal injury.
