What is an EICR?
Sometimes known as Fixed Wire Testing, or Periodic Inspection & Testing, this process covers the testing of all the fixed wiring systems within your building, such as mains panels, distributions boards, socket outlets, air conditioning and others.
It involves a series of stringent visual inspections followed by electrical tests on all systems within a building. It highlights any problems or potential problems, allowing you to plan any necessary maintenance works.
Periodic Testing will involve having to disconnect electrical circuits within the building, so careful planning and management is a necessity to minimise business disruption. It is often best performed outside normal working hours, such as a factory shut-down week, or evening, night-time and weekend testing options are also available.
Why do I need to perform an EICR?
EICRs are carried out to ensure compliance with current electrical wiring regulations. These periodic inspections enable the condition of the electrical system to be determined, as any failures or defects to the design and the safety of the system can be identified and then addressed. You may also be forced to carry out fixed wire testing by a 3rd party, such as your landlord, insurance company or local authority in the case of HMO's and some rental properties.
