Provide us with an old electrical certificate or give us a circuit count, and we can give you an instant quote. You may have a large building and be unsure of the electrical distribution, no problem, we will carry out a free survey.

Here’s some useful information on your EICR test, and what happens during the test take a look at our EICR questions blog.
Electrical Safety Certificate – Fixed Wire Testing Services
Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and age. It’s your responsibility to ensure that your tenant(s), or anyone entering or using your property, are not put at risk. A periodic inspection checks the condition of an existing electrical installation against BS 7671; the UK Standard for the safety of electrical installations.
On completion, we will issue an electrical safety certificate (EICR). Your certificate is valid for 1 – 5 years (dependant on business type see below). It will indicate if the installation is in a satisfactory condition for continued service.
It will also identify any nonconformity’s and faults found during the testing. We will advise the cost to repair while onsite where possible or provide a free remedial works quote.
As a guideline the recommended electrical test & inspection frequencies for an electrical safety certificate are:-
- 5-year electrical test commercial properties such as shops, offices, hospitals.
- 3-year electrical test Industrial premises.
- 1-year electrical test Places subject to an entertainment license, Public Swimming pools, caravan parks.
- Change of tenancy landlord electrical test.
- 10-year or change of occupancy domestic test.
