Fixed Wire Testing is the testing of the electrical installations within a building to ensure they are safe and compliant. Employers are legally required to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of their employees.
The frequency of fixed wire or periodic testing must be determined taking into account the installations use and operation and the external influences to which it is subjected.
Larger companies often choose to test part of the site at a time (eg 20% per year for a 5 year frequency, or 33% per year for a 3 year frequency) in order to spread the cost and minimise disruption.
We are an NICEIC approved company with a team of fully qualified electricians working throughout the UK to carry out this service to British standard BS 7671.
Once testing is complete you will be issued with an electrical installation condition report. Also known as an EICR. This report will outline any further works required to ensure the safety of the building fabric and occupants.
