Legislation: SAFETY AND PREVENTION IN HIGH-VOLTAGE INSTALLATIONS
In accordance with Royal Decree 3275/82 [PDF] Footnote (*), dated 17.11.82, high-voltage electrical installations are subject to annual preventive maintenance. This means that companies or institutions that use high-voltage installations are required to conduct an annual preventive inspection of the installations.
In addition, these high-voltage installations must pass a two or three-year technical inspection (varies depending on the autonomous region) focused on personal safety (earth connections, distances, poles, gloves, etc.) and the security of supply. This technical inspection must be carried out by a company authorised by the Ministry of Industry, which requires the submission of the report to the Provincial Department of Industry.
