As a general rule at least once per four years, we visit each electricity user (residence, shop, etc.) and inspect the user's electric facilities to verify that they conform to the applicable statutory technical standards and other safety standards, and report the inspection results to each user. During the visits, we also provide additional advice by answering to users' questions about any worries or troubles in using electricity, or about relevant topics such as safe use of electricity, energy-saving and so on.
When a user installs new electric facilities or makes change to their existing electric facilities, we inspect the facilities upon completion of such installation or change to verify that they conform to the applicable statutory technical standards and other safety standards and that they fit for safe use of electricity, and then report the inspection results to the user.
