Fixed Wire Testing (EICR)
Fixed Wire Testing, which is also referred to as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), is the examination and testing of the circuits and wiring that distribute electricity around the building.
The price is based on the amount of circuits to be tested (a circuit is the switch inside the circuit / consumer board), each switch is priced at just £12.00 per circuit.

It is recommended that periodic inspection and testing is carried out at the following intervals:
Most business premises fall under the 5 year inspection interval, however the frequency is dependent on the type of services you offer or the type of manufacturing your company provides. Please feel free to call us to discuss individual business frequencies.
Tenanted properties should have an inspection either every 5 years or whenever a new tenant moves into the property depending on which one comes first. "The Landlords and Tenant Act 1985" requires landlords of properties with short leases to keep the electrical wiring in repair and in proper working order.
An owner occupied home should be tested every 10 years.
Do insurance companies mandate fixed wire testing?
Increasingly, insurers are insisting that inspection and testing be carried out on a regular basis. Buildings insurance policies may be invalidated in the event of a claim if fixed electrical testing is not completed within the recommended guidelines.
