We do NOT charge you a premium for three-phase circuits and base costings on a single circuit. The service includes visual inspection and physical testing conducted on the entire electrical system.

Laws & Regulations

Legislation requires electrical installations to be maintained in a safe condition. The easiest way to do this is to periodically inspect and test and establish a maintenance programme.

Ensure compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations (1989) and BS7671: 2018 (IEE Wiring Regulations).

On-site Process

Electrical Testing is also known as Fixed Wire Testing, or Electrical Installation Condition Reports.

Each circuit and all accessories such as sockets, light switches and light fittings undergo electrical inspection and testing to identify deficiencies in an electrical installation before they become serious hazards. Over time all fixed wiring can deteriorate, visual damage becomes apparent and overheating occurs, often because of poor maintenance.

Our specialist fixed wire testing service includes the inspection of all electrical elements on site, followed by the actual testing of all circuits and finally, a detailed report is generated and communicated to our clients.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What will my EICR report identify?

Undertaking your electrical installation inspection and testing is the first step to compliance. You will receive your electrical installation condition report (EICR) as well as a remedial quotation that will outline every defect with a code categorising the severity of each defect. Outlined below is the system used as specified by the British Standard (BS 7671: 2018, Amendment 3):

Code C1 ‘Danger present’ -The safety of those using the installation are at risk. A competent person must undertake the remedial work immediately.

Code C2 ‘Potentially dangerous’ – This is less severe than Code 1 classification, however, if left this could cause danger in the future. It is recommended that immediate action is taken.

Code FI ‘Further Investigation Required’ – The engineer has made observations while testing and recommends further investigation is undertaken.

Code C3 ‘Improvement Recommended’ – An engineer has identified something which does not comply with current wiring regulations, but is not dangerous.

Having your electrics tested and inspected is a requirement of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. When dangerous defects have been identified, remedial repairs need to take place straight away to make sure that all occupants are safe and the building is compliant.

What are my obligations for electrical testing?

Electrical testing – also called periodic inspection and testing, fixed wire testing or electrical installation condition reporting (EICR) – is a significant part of any Health & Safety procedure. Many insurance companies demand their clients to undertake this process to remain compliant with their policy.

The frequency of testing is determined by the sector in which the company operates, and should be undertaken by a competent person, ideally by companies registered with electrical regulatory bodies such as NICEIC or the ECA. The process is finalised when a business receives a valid Electrical Installation Condition Report.

How frequently is electrical testing required?

  • Maximum period 5 years between inspections and testing:
    • Commercial
    • Offices
    • Shops
    • Hospitals
    • Educational establishments
    • Restaurants and hotels
    • Public Houses
    • Maximum period 3 years between inspections and testing:
    • Industrial
    • Leisure complexes (excluding pools)
    • Theatres
    • Agricultural & horticultural

*For some special installations, such as swimming pools, petrol stations and caravan parks, it is recommended that testing is undertaken annually. *
