Businesses and rented accommodation are required, under the ‘Electricity at Work Regulation 1989’ Act, to undertake inspection and testing of internal wiring every five years.
Our professional wire testing service, provided by our experienced electricians, covers the whole of Leicestershire and uses the latest equipment to ensure your property meets all the necessary standards.
Fixed wire testing can also be known as:
The test checks the electrical installations and systems that conduct electricity around the building. It covers all the electrical wiring in a building and includes main panels, distribution boards, lighting, socket outlets, air conditioning and other fixed plant. Once the electrical installation has been tested and verified as safe, an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) is issued, and we will label and log it on the equipment correctly.
It is a legal requirement for all landlords to maintain all electrical installations they provide for tenants to use, and to have them certified as safe every twelve months. Failure to comply with BS7671 2008 regulations can often result in a fine or even imprisonment.
We undertake stringent testing and supply the relevant Landlord Safety Certificates.
