To ensure the protection and safety of people, animals and property, all electrical installations must be periodically inspected in accordance with the standards in force, as defined by the Ordinance on Low-Voltage Installations, and their assignments. Low-voltage electrical installations must be installed, modified, maintained and inspected in accordance with recognized technical rules.

Before buying the different lamps for your ceiling, accent or mood lighting, it's essential to have a clear idea of what the final result will look like. There are four main types of lighting.
First of all, there's general lighting, which is used to illuminate an entire room, whether it's the living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom or outdoors. This light source needs to be powerful enough to reach every nook and cranny. In a large room, it's useful to have more than one source so that the room is sufficiently lit without having a lamp that's too dazzling. You can also add wall sconces to soften the mood. Lamps for general lighting can be grouped together in a chandelier, provided that the ceiling height is sufficient.
After general lighting, there are accent lights. Mounted on walls, furniture or the floor, these sources create a comfortably lit area without flooding the room with light. With spot lighting, you can focus light on the dining room, TV area or kitchen worktop. In the bedroom, spot lighting at the headboard makes reading more comfortable. In the bathroom, this type of lighting is a precious asset for applying make-up or shaving.
It's also common to install lighting in closets and cupboards to make it easier to find items.
Among the existing types of lighting, there are also decorative fixtures whose aim is to highlight the interior or exterior design of the home. The precision of their beam is paramount to precisely highlight a corner of a wall, knick-knacks, paintings or works of art.
White light is available in a wide variety of shades, each with a specific effect on the human organism. A distinction is made between the colors of light: warm white, neutral white and daylight white. Incandescent bulbs have always been warm white, while LED lamps are available in all three color ranges. On some recent models of LED bulbs or floor lamps, it's even possible to change color and intensity gradually.
Light can have both a stimulating and calming effect on human beings. Warm, low-temperature light has a calming, relaxing effect, while cool light makes rooms appear larger. A high proportion of blue, which is particularly strong in cold light, has a biologically stimulating effect and promotes concentration and performance. Warm light, on the other hand, promotes the sleep hormone melanin.
FAQ Electrical installation compliance
Your distribution system operator (DSO) will send you a request for inspection by post, giving you 6 months to carry out the periodic inspection of your electrical installation.
Depending on the type of property you own, you'll need to do this at different intervals. Your DSO will specify, in its letter, the periodicity that applies to your property and the deadline to be respected.
Once the inspection has been carried out, and if no faults are found, a safety report and a test and measurement protocol are sent to the DSO by an independent inspection company commissioned by you. As the owner, you will need to keep a copy of these documents until the next inspection.
If any faults are found in your electrical installation, you will need to appoint an approved electrician to carry out the repair work, in accordance with the fault report drawn up by the independent inspection company. Once the work has been carried out, the safety report is sent to you and your distribution network operator.
At the beginning of 2002, the Ordinance on Low-Voltage Electrical Installations (OIBT) came into force in Switzerland. As owners are fully responsible for their electrical installations, they are obliged to have them inspected periodically, at their own expense.
The aim of the Low Voltage Installation Standard (NIBT) is to protect people, animals and property against the risks and damage that may arise from the normal use of the installation. The NIBT or SN 411000 contains rules for the programming, construction and testing of electrical installations supplied with nominal voltages up to 1000V AC or 1500V DC. It is based on the Electrical Installation Act (EIA), the Ordinance on Heavy Current (VVV), the Ordinance on Low-Voltage Electrical Equipment (VLV) and the Ordinance on Low-Voltage Installations (VLV). The ITLV is issued by Electrosuisse, through Technical Commission 64 (TC 64), which maintains, modernizes and expands it with the help of representatives from various branches and associations. EIT.swiss is a member of TC 64, representing the interests and concerns of the electrical industry.
