What is a fixed wiring test?

For the fixed wire testing – which is usually performed anywhere between 5 and 10 years, depending on the property – an extensive inspection is carried out. All cables are inspected for any deterioration and wear and tear issues and any faulty components will be replaced. This is followed by a number of comprehensive tests to determine that everything is wired up correctly, circuits are performing as they should, and the system meets stringent UK safety standards.

EICR Certification

Once the testing has been completed, you’ll be given an (EICR) certificate to prove that it has been carried out by a qualified electrical engineer. It’s worth noting that many insurance companies require proof that a fixed wiring test has been issued in order to provide insurance coverage.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is meant by electrical testing?

Electrical testing is the thorough testing of any systems that are operated by electrical currents. The reasons they are tested regularly are to ensure that they are working as they are supposed to, to ensure the health and safety of the building and its inhabitants, workers, and patrons, and to comply with strict legal regulations.

Do you carry out electrical testing on homes as well as businesses?

Yes, we do. We’re happy to carry out electrical inspections on new build houses, extensions, solar installations, media & cinema rooms. We also specialise in contract work for businesses with multiple locations and service agreements for public institutions and local councils.

What are the different types of electrical testing?

There are many different types of electrical testing, including RCD testing, smoke detector testing, portable appliance testing, dielectric withstand testing, insulation resistance testing, earth continuity testing, and leakage current test. If you are unsure what electrical test your property may need, speak to one of our highly qualified team who will be happy to help.

How often should my electrics be tested?

There isn’t one catch-all time period for when you should have your electrical testing carried out. Homeowners should have a test carried out every ten years, whereas workplaces and public buildings have to be tested far more frequently. For example, an office environment, commercial property, retail property, and educational properties must have an inspection every five years, whereas somewhere like a hospital must have an electrical test done every calendar year.
