Periodic Fixed Wire Testing

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 state that all systems shall, at all times, be of such construction as to prevent danger, and shall be maintained so as to prevent such danger.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends that to comply with the regulations, an inspection and testing program should be undertaken at all places of work. This means that a report on the condition of the electrical installation and associated items of equipment must be obtained to form the basis of a repair and maintenance program. This will in turn guarantee, as far as is reasonably practicable, the safety of your workforce and to keep the flow of your business by minimizing unplanned breakdowns.

Depending upon the type of establishment, the frequency of inspection and testing can range from annually to every 5 years. However, all electrical installations are required to meet the requirements of the IEE Wiring Regulations (BS7671) for the UK and equivalent standards throughout the rest of the world.

On completion of testing CSI will issue an "Electrical Installation Condition Report" (EICR) giving a full record of your installation, including: full test results, circuit designation, protection information such as fuse ratings, defect lists and requirements for repair.
