Commercial Test & Inspection

Helping Businesses Stay Compliant

Did you know that you are legally obliged under the Electricity at Work Act 1989 to ensure your business premises are regularly inspected and tested?



Take a look at these questions, and if you have any doubts about your compliance, just call the Test Elec team on  and we’ll help get you back on track

Niceic Certificate

Is your EICR certificate up to date ?

Do you have a current, in-date EICR certificate? If not — or you’re not sure — call us right away on because you’re breaching your obligations under the Electricity At Work Act 1989 which is a legal requirement for all businesses, it states you must maintain your building and the only way to show the buildings electrical systems having been maintained is by carrying out frequent electrical testing. So having a current Electrical certificate is must for all business owners, directors and managers.

Niceic Cert Pass or Fail

Is your EICR certificate Satisfactory?

If you have a current EICR certificate, is it labelled ‘satisfactory’ or Unsatisfactory? For you to be legally compliant under the Electricity at Work Act 1989, your certificate must show the status of your electrics as ‘satisfactory’ after its Electrical Installation Condition report. If it doesn’t and it is labelled Unsatisfactory, this means that Code1 and Code 2 defects have been listed in the defects schedule of your electrical Installation Condition Report - call us immediately on and we’ll pinpoint and fix what’s gone wrong.

Urgent Defects

do You Have Code 1 & 2 Defects?

Any Code 1 defects listed on your EICR certificate are very serious and require immediate attention as they pose a present danger , and there’s a risk of electrocution or electrical fire. Any Code 2 defects although not as serious, must still be addressed right away, as they point to a potentially dangerous issue with your electrical installation. Call us right now on as should anyone be injured or killed through electrocution or electrical fire, you — as the business owner, director or manager — could face prosecution and a custodial sentence – your insurance could also be void.

Recomendations

Do You Have Code 3 Defects?

Not quite as serious as Code 1 or 2 defects, any Code 3 defects on your EICR certificate are recommendations and must still be addressed before your next EICR Test date. Public buildings are generally 1year and Commercial buildings 3-5 year. These recommendations point out the installation is not necessarily dangerous, but it does not comply with the current version of the regulations, should anyone be killed or injured as a result, you would still be liable. Call us now on and let’s get a
pre-planned rectification program in place.

The Facts - Electricity At Work Regs 1989

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 imposes a duty of care on employers to manage their electrical systems and products so as not to cause death or injury to others. The regulations cover the design, construction, operation and maintenance of these systems. This is a statutory law, we must all comply with.

The Electricity at Work regulations came into force on 1st April 1990. To comply with them, employers must monitor the ongoing condition of their electrical systems through regular inspection and testing to ensure that the systems are safe to use. Records of the test results should be kept on site.

The regulations cover all premises and places where people work and customers have access to, including:

Public buildings such as schools, hospitals, sports and leisure centres, museums, cinemas, theatres, football, cricket and athletic grounds; Residential homes for the elderly, hotels and guesthouses; Industrial factories, farms and construction sites; and Commercial offices, shops and warehouses.

EICR - Electrical Installation Condition Report

A Domestic Periodic Inspection or Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), is an inspection on the condition of an existing electrical fixed wiring installation, to identify (in order of priority) any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations.

A Periodic Inspection Report is a check of the fixed electrical wiring circuits in a property to ensure that they are safe and performing well. The report you receive includes details of defects and assesses the performance of the electrical system against the UK standards of safety for electrical installations.These are set out in BS (British Standard) 7671: 2008 (IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition).

The Elecitrical Installation Condition Report details any areas where the installation falls short of the standard whether it is due to poor workmanship, age of the system and materials, or other causes. It then includes a list of recommended repairs or actions needed to make the installation safe or bring it up to standard

If you require any further information please go to our contact page, leave your details and we would be more than willing to help.

Electrical Installation Certificate

Fire Alarm Certification

From 1st October 2006 The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires the Responsible Person (RP) of any non domestic premises to carry out a fire risk assessment,including measures to reduce or eliminate the risk of fire, and identify persons at risk. Where there are 5 or more employees, a record must be kept of significant findings and a definition of a Responsible Person is contained in the above Order.

There are official guidance documents on www.gov.uk which will assist you in conducting a fire risk assessment.

Where the RP does not have control of all parts of the building and it is shared with other persons, they should be informed of significant risks identified. The person who does have control (landlord, owner, or other employer etc.) has a responsibility to make sure the regulations are complied with, in the parts they control.This may require communication and cooperation between parties to ensure coordination of fire safety provisions, fire fighting measures, evacuation procedures etc.
