What is involved in Fixed Wire Testing?
Our highly qualified and experienced electrical testing engineers will conduct a number of tests on each distribution board, which usually requires each circuit to be isolated for a short period of time. Our engineer will work closely with your business to identify which circuits will be affected during the testing process to minimise the impact of fixed wire testing on your business, and develop a testing schedule to minimise the impact of the electrical testing process. This may include providing electrical testing and fixed wire testing outside of your normal working hours.
Is Fixed Wire Testing a Legal Requirement?
An Electrical Test, Fixed Wire Test, or Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR Test) not only demonstrates your compliance as a business with a variety of Health and Safety Regulations including the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and BS 7671 Requirements for Electrical Installations (IET Wiring Regulations). It also demonstrates compliance with your commercial insurance provider. Plant and Safety provides detailed EICR reports upon the successful completion of our electrical testing services in accordance with the IET Wiring Regulations.
How often should Fixed Wire Testing be carried out?
The recommended frequency of Fixed Wire Testing varies between 1 and 5 years depending upon the business type, so how often do you need to test your workplace?
Fixed Wire Testing, also known as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), checks that your electrical installations or circuits confirm to the latest wiring regulations, in order to ensure that you are compliant with relevant Health and Safety, and Electrical Regulations.
The frequency of testing is specified in the current version of the IET Wiring Regulations, also known as BS7671:2018 Requirements for Electrical Installations. Typical factors which determine the frequency for fixed wire testing includes:
- The type of installation
- How often it is used
- External influences or environment to which the electrical installation is exposed
For many commercial businesses, the frequency of testing will be every 5 years, however higher risk environments will require testing at least every 3 years.
