Fixed installation testing or fixed wire testing is undertaken in accordance with the 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations and Guidance Note 3, and to the standards as set out in BS7671:2008 (including the third amendment, effective from October 2016).
Consultations, Surveys and Inspections
Electrical installations are treated to a thorough inspection and testing regime by our skilled and qualified operatives, and via careful liaison and free site consultations we are able to keep any disruption to the electrical installation to a minimum.
In the past, this work has been referred to as hard wire testing, periodic inspections, or even 5 yearly inspection and testing (as most commercial installations require to be tested at 5 yearly intervals). However, there are exceptions; depending upon the environment and installation, the maximum period between inspection and testing can be as little as 1 year or as much as 10 years. Our management will advise the most cost-effective solution for our clients’ regime whilst ensuring statutory compliance is met with transparency of process and reference to the relevant statutory documentation throughout.
As a member of the NICEIC all of our Electrical Installation Conditions Reports (EICR) are produced to their standards and in the NICEIC’s format.
Quotations for remedial work can be provided for any unsatisfactory installation, although we pride ourselves on offering a third-party assessment. As such, our reports can be sent on to other electrical contractors to enable competitive quotes to be gathered by our clients.
