We have been carrying out fixed wire testing in Sheffield and Leeds for many years across a range of retail, industrial and commercial organisations and work with the client to keep any disruption to an absolute minimum.
We test all equipment and systems from distribution right down to the smallest piece of equipment. The full results and the extent of the tests are recorded in an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) and issued to the responsible person. This report will include details of any defects and of course any dangerous conditions (which are reported on discovery and can be promptly rectified).
It's not just that it's in our nature to go about our work quietly and efficiently, it's also stated in Guidance Note 3 of the IEE Wiring Regulations which says:
"Periodic tests should be made in such a way as to minimise disturbance of the installation and inconvenience to the user."
We will always agree a testing schedule with our customer before doing anything, the objective of the schedule at the outset is for zero disruption but even with out of hours work the nature of some systems means they have to be disconnected for testing and this can cause some short-term downtime.
Testing is a legal requirement (see below) and some organisations are likely to insist on the existence of a valid EICR report and testing schedule, for exapmle - insurance companies, licencing authorities, mortgage lenders and landlords.
