Fixed Wire Testing

With fixed wire testing you can ensure your business complies with The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, The Electricity at Work (Northern Ireland) 1991 and HSE guidelines, which stipulate that all electrical systems must undergo fixed wire testing every three months to five years.

Electrical installations can deteriorate with use and age, and periodic fixed wire testing, also known as an EICR, is vital to ensure the safety of users and the safety and serviceability of equipment.

Also referred to as ‘Hard Wire Testing’, ‘Fixed Installation Testing’, or ‘Electrical Installation Condition Report’, Fixed Wire Testing is a procedure for testing of the electrical systems, circuits and services carrying electricity around a building.

Fixed wiring relates to all the equipment required to distribute electrical power safely from the origin to all the plant, equipment and appliances at the relevant site. Its broad definition means that its inspection can encompass little or much.
