  • That the Early Streamer Emission lightning rod maintains its integrity, that is to say, it preserves the electronic and/or mechanical characteristics stated by the manufacturer.
  • That there has been no extension or modification to the protected structure that might require installation of supplementary lightning protection measures.
  • That there are no appreciable cuts in the conductors by visually checking their electrical continuity.
  • That all the mechanical fastenings and protections are in good condition.
  • That there is no appreciable corrosion in the components.
  • That the safety distances are respected and the number of equipotential connections is sufficient and that they are in proper condition.
  • A visual check of the lightning meter to verify whether the installation has received an impact.
  • If the installation has power surge protectors, we check whether their local defect detector indicates that they have expired or not.
  • Verification of the electrical continuity of the down conductors.
  • Measurement of the electrical resistance of the grounding.
  • Verification of the correct functioning of the Early Streamer Emission lightning rod in accordance with the methodology of the manufacturer.
  • Drafting of a report that records the points inspected during maintenance.
