Fixed Wire Testing

Fixed wire testing or electrical installation condition report relates to an assessment of the in service condition of an electrical installation against the requirements of BS7671:2018 (18th Edition Wiring Regulations) at the time of the inspection, irrespective of the age of the installation.

EICR (Fixed Wire Testing)

An Electrical Installation Condition Report differs greatly from PAT Testing and Fixed Appliance Testing because it is an in-depth inspection on the internal wiring of the building not appliances.

The results and measurements and values taken during the Electrical Installation Condition Reports are clearly recorded in a report and appropriate recommendations, if applicable, are made for any damage, deterioration or defects observed that may give rise to danger to be remedied, such that the installation may continue to be used in safety.

The IEE recommend the following maximum periods of time between inspections and testing:

Domestic Installations – 10 years or change of occupancy

Commercial Installations – 5 years or change of occupancy

Industrial Installations – 3 years

Residential accommodation – 5 years or change of occupancy

Offices, shops & laboratories – 5 years

Please contact us for details on special installations and buildings open to the public such as cinemas, swimming pools and caravan parks and any other information that you may require.

ICSS Limited will be pleased to advise you of the appropriate testing schedule and supply a quotation based on your requirements. Testing will be carried out in accordance with regulations set by the IEE. By ensuring that an ‘electrical MOT’ plays an essential role in the operation of your business or property, it is highly likely that you pre-empting electrical issues thereby saving money and perhaps preventing costly accidents in the long run.

It is worth remembering that you may be required to have a Electrical Installation Condition Report (a.k.a Periodic Inspection Report, Fixed Wiring Report!) conducted for insurance and licensing purposes
