What is the Purpose of Fixed Wire Inspection and Testing?

The purpose of Periodic fixed wire inspection and testing is to provide an engineering view on whether or not the electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition so it can continue to be used safely.

Fixed wire inspection and testing involves testing all the electrical installation and systems you have in your property. From thoroughly checking all electrical wiring, distribution boards, lighting to socket outlets. Here at MRB Electrical, we are confident that we can help you with our service, we will also ensure that once all the testing and inspecting has been carried out, we will issue an electrical installation condition report (EICR). Our customers highly appreciate this about our services, do not just take our word for it, visit our reviews page and read through the reviews they have left. 

When should Fixed Wire Inspection and Testing be carried out?

This is usually dependent on a few things, such as the type of installation you have, how often it is used and any environmental influences to which the electrical installation is exposed to. Here at MRB Electrical, we have listed when different types of properties should typically get their electrical installation tested. 

Domestic properties

Testing and inspection should be carried out before you first move in and then it is recommended every 10 years, although this may change depending on the use and if any quality electrical maintenance is carried out. 

Domestic Leased properties

In general, rented accommodation should be inspected & tested at no more than at 5 yearly intervals. In addition, at every change of occupancy there should be an inspection, the type and scope of this inspection will depend on the overall condition of the property and when the electrical installation was last provided with an EICR.

Commercial Properties

For commercial properties the frequency of inspection and testing will vary depending on the type and use of the building. For instance the maximum frequency for an office is recommended to be no more than 5 years, whereas a swimming pool is recommended to be no more than 1 years between formal inspections. Additional routine checks need to be carried out as part of a robust maintenance program which are normally between 6 to 12 months.
