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.
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.
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
Electrical testing is vitally important for all businesses & homes. Electrical components deteriorate over time so, to avoid electrical faults & fires, all homes should be tested every 10 years.
Businesses have a duty to 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).
There’s 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 are able to advise what testing & certification is required. We can carry out tests, complete any work that’s required and issue the relevant certificates.
More Information On Electrical Testing
Electrical Installation Condition Report
EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report), is the new name for the Periodic Inspection Report. They are required to ensure landlords, all commercial & industrial premises, churches, housing associations and letting agents are staying compliant with current legislation, such as Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 & Housing (Scotland Act) 2006. 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 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.
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 requried by law.
Our NICEIC approved electricians carry out PAT Testing for businesses & landlords across the central belt of Scotland, which includes Glasgow, Edinburgh & Ayrshire.
Letting Agents / Landlords
