Whats tested and how long does it take?

Our engineers will check the electrical installation against the requirements of BS 7671 – Requirements for Electrical Installations ( IEE Wiring Regulations ) – as amended, which is the national safety standard for electrical installations.

The periodic inspection will take into account all relevant circumstances including the following factors:

a) adequacy of earthing and bonding b) suitability of the switchgear and controlgear c) serviceability of equipment d) type of wiring system and its condition e) provision of residual current devices for socket-outlets that may be used to plug in electrical equipment used outdoors f) presence of adequate identification and notices g) extent of any wear and tear, damage or other deterioration h) changes in use of the premises which have to led to, or might lead to, deficiencies in the installation.

We provide an electrical installation condition report (EICR) or periodic inspection report (PIR) as part of the inspection.

Reports usually take between 3-8 hours on site, we can complete tests out of working hours if your business requires this.

We’re NICEIC registered, don’t get caught out by self regulated “electricians”

The NICEIC are the UK’s leading electrical regulatory body. The NICEIC operates a strict membership criteria via a rigorous on-boarding assessment with continual monitoring. To maintain our NICEIC status we have to ensure all our engineers undergo regular regulation training session, our testing equipment is required to be calibrated yearly and we always test to the latest IET edition (currently the 18th edition).

There is currently no legal requirement for an electrician to join a regulatary body. This is why you’ll see prices for commercial electrical testing as low as £5 per circuit. Generally, cheaper prices indicate that the electrician is self-certifiying via unregulated paperwork. Whilst the savings look attractive its worth considering that most insurance companies, landlords or legal practices only recognise the NICEIC as a credible regulatory body so if you employ the services of a none NICEIC electrician, you may end up paying twice.

What is an electrical installation condition report?

A Electrical installation condition report (EICR) is a formal method of recording the findings of the periodic inspection.

The main purpose of a EICR is to report on the safety condition of an existing installation. It should describe the overall condition as either ‘satisfactory’, in which case no immediate remedial work is required, or ‘unsatisfactory’ which means remedial work is required to make the installation safe to use.

FAQs

What is Fixed Wire Testing?
Fixed Wire Testing is the report and inspection of electrical installation in a premises in regards to condition and safety. It is known as the Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). It is designed to make sure that the electrical wiring is compliant with current regulations.
Do I need a Fixed Wire Test, legally?
If you are a landlord, business owner or allow public and or employees use the facilities of a building that contains and electrical installation, the HSE requires you to ensure the electrical installation is fit for purpose and has been inspected by a registered competent person. All fixed electrical wiring deteriorates with time, meaning that you need to regularly test your entire electrical distribution system to ensure its full safety and compliance, not only to stay within current regulations, but to keep your family, tenants, staff and visitors safe. All our engineers are NICEIC accredited, and make sure all work carried out complies with both the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 as well as IEE Wiring Regulation BS 7671. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 state that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury or harm must be maintained and kept in a safe condition.
What if my test fails?

Once the inspection is complete, we will pass on a full report with every item tested listed. If there is a fault or observation with a particular item, then it will be categorised as either a Code 1, Code 2, or a Code 3 or FI.

C1 Failure is in need of immediate action/repair since there is a real danger present.

C2 requires attention/repair in order to mark a cert as satisfactory.

C3 is a suggested improvement.

FI is further investigation required.

With every report, we provide a full quotation covering all codes and observations. This enables customers to make an informed decision regarding what is and what isn’t required to get the certificate to a satisfactory outcome. All our pricing structures are transparent and listed on our website.
