Discuss PIR in factories in the Periodic Inspection Reporting & Certification area at ElectriciansForums.net
Agreed and there is also merit to having a full 'external' PIR completed and identified defects rectified as a 'line in the sand' prior to commencing an in-house maintenance/testing program.A PIR does not have to be conducted by an outside organisation, it can be conducted by the in house maintenance team.
There is some merit to using an outsider, as a fresh set of eyes and a different viewpoint is often vey useful.
