This question is with regards to Periodic inspection and testing on a building site compound.
I know the temp installation should be tested once every 3 months, which would be the supply to each of the Portacabins, such as the site office, canteen ect. But can anyone tell me how often the actual Portacabins should be tested.
Would it come under Special locations and test yearly.
I appreciate your help in this matter.

Arent the porta cabins classed as temporary and therefore should be tested every 3 months as well?

Hi Jasons6930
Thanks for your reply.
I was asked this question today, as it is only the supply to the cabins that is temporary, and the cabins have a permanent internal installation.
This would mean that doing 3 month periodic on the compound 3 phase CU would only require Zs PFC and r1+r2 at the income on the Portacabin CU, and not a full test on each cabin.

Hmm...

The ones that i have installed temp supplies to, came with a basic PIR (if i can call it that).

Have you had a flick through GN3 to see what it says?
