Does my business’ premises need Fixed Wire Testing?

You have a legal obligation to comply with the Electricity at Work Act 1989, and the best way to conform with these regulations is to carry out an electrical installation condition report (EICR) as per BS 7671 Guidance Note 3. Increasingly, insurers are insisting that fixed wire electrical testing is carried out on a regular basis, and without an up-to-date EICR certificate, your insurance could be invalid.

This could mean that if an avoidable accident did occur, as the business owner, you could be held liable for failing to comply with regulations.

If you’re unsure of your business’ legal requirements when it comes to a Periodic Inspection, contact us today for free advice to ensure your business is safe and compliant.

A guide to Periodic Inspection frequency

How often do my fixed wires need testing?

The frequency in which your fixed wire electricals need inspecting will depend on a number of factors, such as the type of installation, its use and frequency of maintenance.

If you’re unsure of how this applies to you, simply get in touch with our customer service team and they’ll advise you on the required frequency for your commercial property. We also provide a free reminder service ahead of your next inspection date, to ensure your inspections never slip behind.

A guide to Periodic Inspections

Fixed Wire Testing can prevent avoidable problems with your wiring, reduce any electrical risk and ensure your business is safe and fully compliant with relevant Health & Safety regulations. Once your Periodic Inspection is complete, we’ll issue you with an Electrical Inspection Condition Report (EICR) for your records – your insurance provider may want to see this too.

What is Periodic Testing

Periodic Testing , also known as  Fixed Wire Testing or Fixed Electrical Testing, is the process of checking the safety of electrical systems or installations in a building, to make sure they are safe for you, your staff, your customers and your visitors.

What do the observation codes mean in the Periodic Inspection report?

Observation codes are items you will see on your EICR Fixed Wire Testing report, and they determine the actions that should be taken going forward. Here’s a brief overview of what each means:

  • C1 – ‘Immediate action’ is required due to a dangerous fault
  • C2 – Fault could be ‘potentially dangerous’ if left in its current state
  • C3 – ‘Improvement recommended’
  • F1 – ‘Further investigation required without delay’

During and after your inspection, we can advise on what your reported observation codes mean in more detail, and our experienced electricians can also provide support to investigate and fix any faults detailed in your report.

How we minimise operational disruption

To reduce disruption to your employees and customers, where possible, we’d recommend Fixed Wire Testing is completed outside of your business’ normal operating hours.

We provide an out-of-hours service at no extra cost from 5pm Monday to Friday and all day during Saturday, giving you the option and flexibility to choose whatever works best for you.

I’m in a serviced office – is it my responsibility?

To ensure you’re meeting all your legal obligations as an employer, if you are in a serviced office, it’s worth checking with your landlord to see if your office has had the appropriate level of Fixed Wire Testing.
