INSPECTION AND TESTING OF ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING POINTS
Manage your obligations with periodic inspection and testing of EV charging points
As the number of Electric Vehicle (EV) registrations in the UK continues to increase, so too does the number of EV charging points. More and more organisations are installing EV charging points on their premises, which require periodic inspection and testing to ensure safety.
