EICR - Electrical Installation Condition Report

We are NICEIC Approved contractors & conduct EICR reports all over central Scotland.

This was previously called the Periodic Inspection Report & sometimes a Fixed Wire Test.

Periodic Inspection Report / Fixed Wire Test

This is a common term used for the testing that takes place, prior to issuing an EICR.

There are different guidelines for domestic & commercial properties, so read on.

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing)

PAT or Portable Appliance Testing is the process by which safety checks are performed on electrical appliances.

This needs to take place in all commercial & rented properties.

Landlord Electrical Safety Certificates

Landlords need to ensure their properties are safe through regular safety inspections.

This means carrying out a safety test prior to every new tenancy and at least every 5 years.

Domestic & Commercial Electrical Testing

Electrical Testing Services:
Across Glasgow, Edinburgh,
Stirling & Ayrshire

We carry out electrical testing in commercial & domestic premises across the central belt of Scotland. This includes Glasgow, Ayrshire, Stirling & Edinburgh.

Businesses must fully test their electrics & equipment every 3 -5 years. This is to ensure they are compliant with Electricity At Work regulations. It’s also advisable to have annual visual inspections along with Portable Appliance Testing (PAT testing).

Electrical testing is also vitally important for homes. Electrical components deteriorate over time so, to avoid electrical faults & fires, all homes should be tested every 10 years.

There is also a requirement for landlords to have their properties tested every 5 years & whenever the tenancy changes.

Whether you’re a homeowner, landlord with a small one-bedroom flat or a multi-site organisation, we can advise what testing & certification is required. We can carry out tests, complete any work that’s required and issue the relevant certificates.

It’s also recommended for all houses / flats to have an EICR every ten years.

Our NICEIC approved electricians carry out EICRs in all types of property across the central belt of Scotland, which includes Glasgow, Edinburgh & Ayrshire. Follow the link below to read more about EICR – what’s involved, how often they’re required & the different outcomes of an EICR report.

Periodic Inspection Report

This is now called an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report). As electrical components deteriorate over time, this is a comprehensive inspection of the electrical systems and installation in your home or business. Periodic inspection is required by law for all commercial, industrial & rented properties.

For more information on how often this needs to take place, what’s involved & how we can carry out an EICR…just follow the link below.

PAT Testing

Portable Appliance Testing

The Portable Appliance Testing rules are very simple, as detailed in the 1989 Electricity at Work Regulations Act: “All [electrical] systems shall at all times be of such construction as to prevent, so far as reasonably practical, such danger.” In order to comply with the legislation, it makes sense for all organisations & landlords to perform testing on appliances on a consistent basis. In general, a visual inspection should take place at least once a year, although this is not specifically required by law.

Our NICEIC-approved electricians carry out PAT Testing for businesses & landlords across the central belt of Scotland, which includes Glasgow, Edinburgh & Ayrshire.
