Fixed Wire Testing (EICR)
Fixed Wire Testing, which is also referred to as Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), is the examination and testing of the circuits that distribute electricity around the building. This includes all electrical circuits in a building that are fixed, such as lighting, electrical socket outlets, air conditioning and other fixed plant equipment.
Tests take place not only to meet the legal requirements of the "Electricity at Work Regulations Act 1989", "Health & Safety at Work Act 1974" and "BS 7671" (IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition as amended), it also provides you with proof that the electrical installation in your building is safe and has been tested by our fully trained and compliant electrical engineers.

How often should this be carried out?
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.
