Domestic Testing & Inspection
Every electrical installation will deteriorate with use, age and general wear and tear. To ensure your electrical installation is in a safe and serviceable condition it is recommended by British Standard BS 7671 that you test your installation at least every ten years (5 if it is a rented property).
Formerly known as Periodic Inspection Testing an Electrical Inspection Condition Report provides a comprehensive inspection of your home’s electrical systems and installation. We will look for anything dangerous from damages and defects to deterioration.
After the electrical testing and inspection has been completed, our engineer will provide you with a report for your records.
Homeowners may not be required by law to have an Electrical Inspection Condition Report, but if you are planning on selling or buying a home it is often required as part of the process.
It is good practice to regularly check the safety of your electrics. You regularly get your car or boiler serviced so your home electrics should be no different.
Commercial Testing & Inspection
In the commercial sector The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 imposes a duty of care on employers to manage their electrical systems and products so as not to cause death or injury to others. These regulations cover all premises and places where people work from offices to farms to factories.
Business owners are recommended to have an EICR test and inspection on their property every five years. The same time-frame applies to rental properties or buy-to-lets, but landlords should also have an EICR test done when new tenants lease the property.
A periodic inspection checks the condition of an existing electrical installation against BS 7671, the UK Standard for the safety of electrical installations. A periodic inspection will:
- Discover if electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
- Identify potential electrical shock risks and fire hazards
- Find any defective electrical work
- Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding
After the EICR test has been completed your electrical system has passed inspection or required remedial work is carried out, our engineer will provide you with a certificate of safety for your records and peace of mind.
