EICR Fixed Wire Testing

We have been carrying out fixed wire testing across the UK for many years for a wide range of residential, industrial and commercial organisations and work with the client to keep any disruption to an absolute minimum.

We test all parts of the electrical installation from distribution equipment right down to the smallest socket or lighting circuit. 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).

We are fully NICEIC approved which means your EICR is carried out to the latest edition of the IEE regulations and comes complete with a unique serial number which can be used to satisfy insurance company requirements or building control regulations.

Minimising Disruption

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.

More about Fixed Wire Testing

Fixed Wire Testing

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 example - insurance companies, licencing authorities, mortgage lenders and landlords.

It involves a series of meticulous visual inspections and electrical diagnostic checks on all systems in the building including things like fixed plant and air conditioning and the obvious items such as lighting, socket outlets and distribution boards. If anything carries or uses electricity in the building, it gets tested!

Legal Requirements

There are four key pieces of legislation specific to fixed testing and electrical maintenance, all of which are enforced by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE). They are..

  • Health & Safety at Work Act 1974
  • Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999
  • Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
  • Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992
