Electrical safety is our highest priority, and electrical safety inspections are essential to ensure your property, domestic or commercial meets all electrical safety regulations and imposes no risk to users.

An electrical inspection, known as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is essentially a MOT on your electrical installation, and is recommended for all installations:

  • Domestic
  • Industrial
  • Commercial

An electrical installation is a fixed wiring system made up of equipment, such as distribution boards, consumer units (fuse boxes), wiring, lighting and power circuits, and switches and sockets. An electrical installation does not include electrical appliances, such as cookers, heaters and machines.

Your electrics may look good on the outside, but cables, switches, socket-outlets and other equipment deteriorate with prolonged use, so they all need to be checked and necessary replacements or repairs made in good time.

Our detailed Electrical Inspection Report will provide you with:

  • Circuit identification and documentation
  • Fixed electrical wiring inspection and testing
  • Consumer Unit, Circuit Breaker and RCD inspection and testing
  • Phase sequence & rotation (3-phase systems only)
  • Protection for safety and earthing arrangements
  • Functional testing and safe operation of accessories
  • Test report with observations and recommendations

The frequency of periodic inspection and testing must be determined taking into account:

  1. Type of installation (Domestic / Commercial / Industrial)
  2. Its use and operation
  3. Frequency and quality of maintenance
  4. External influences to which it is subjected

We use specialist dedicated electrical inspection software to accurately record & document all electrical inspections to ensure a thorough inspection which is correctly assessed and graded accordingly, with a full detailed list of any observations supported with their associated regulation and a recommendation.

All electrical installations are inspected & tested to the latest IET BS7671 wiring regulations and in accordance to IET Guidance Note 3 (GN3).  Inspection intervals typically range from 3 months – 10 years, 3 months for construction sites, 1 year for a high volume public accessible area (e.g. Cinema) and 10 Years for a domestic dwelling or change of occupancy – whichever is earlier.

All domestic properties are inspected & tested to building regulations act 2000 part 4 & part 7.  All commercial & industrial premises are inspected & tested to the latest BS7671 electrical regulations, Electrical Regulations at Work Act 1989 (EWR 1989) and Health & Safety (HSE) guidelines.
