Electrical testing is simply the method to ensure the proper functionality of an electrical installation. As an M&E service provider since 2005 in London, our electricians have conducted numerous EICR inspections,  or so-called Fixed Wire Testing for commercial premises, to act without delay and to remove the risk of anything dangerous or potentially dangerous from your premises. 

We at Polyteck know how hard it is to balance the need for safety with budget constraints, and as an NICEIC Approved contractor, and with an in-house electrical team, we aim to offer you a suitable and competitive service. Polyteck provide electrical services that ensure the facility remains in compliance with evolving regulations.

We offer a wide range of testing and inspection services for commercial premises and landlords. An Electrical Installation Condition Report is essential to a compliant facility. Keeping safety in mind and understanding legal requirements – we are the experts.

Polyteck is against short-cuts in testing, and our engineers have done more than 1000 reports. With in-depth fixed wire testing and the correct paperwork, we ensure that you have everything you need to stay compliant, and to take maximum value from the testing process. Before our engineers start the testing, they will discuss with you, or with the dedicated personnel, what will follow and you will have a clear understanding of what is happening. They will carry out the entire process from isolating any sensitive equipment to confirming the H&S procedures, and explain the results of the EICR certificate. You will receive an in-depth description of what will be done, when you receive the quotation.

What kind of testing is portable electrical equipment usually subjected to?

Portable Appliance Testing or PAT is like a check-up for your electrical gear. We are conducting visual inspections, electrical tests, covering damage checks, ground continuity and insulation resistance measurement and verifying correct wiring and performance.

What are the different categories of electrical tests?

Electrical te­sts come in various forms, serving differe­nt purposes. Functional testing ensure­s that equipment components work as inte­nded. Safety testing e­valuates aspects like insulation re­sistance and grounding to identify potential issue­s. We employ diagnostic testing to identify defects within the system. Performance testing me­asures efficiency and compliance­ with standards. Routine testing involves re­gular check-ups, while periodic te­sting, such as the Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), is conducte­d every 5 years. Additionally, non-de­structive testing methods are­ employed as well.

What are the three primary tests conducted for electrical installations?

When conducting e­lectrical installations there are three important tests you’ve got to know. First up there’s Continuity Testing. It finds out loose or busted connections. Then, we’ve got Insulation Resistance Testing, which locates shocks and shorts. Last but not least, Polarity Testing makes sure all the connections are playing by the rules, just like they should.

Which British standard governs the requirements for electrical testing, and what does it entail?

The British standard that regulates the requirements for electrical testing in the UK is BS 7671 (IET Wiring Regulations)

When should electrical testing be done?

Businesses are expected to comply with Electricity at Work requirements in addition to routine inspections, PAT testing of all workplace equipment, and EICRs every 5 years. These measures will assist you in remaining safe and in complying with the law.

Residential owners should conduct electrical testing at least every five years; nevertheless, regulations mandate a periodic examination every ten years. Owners who fail to comply with electrical safety laws may face fines of up to £30,000.

What's the legal requirement for the 5 year electrical test?

Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a legal requirement in the UK for a 5-year electrical test, specifically for rented properties. Landlords must get one every 5 years or when tenants change. Conducting EICRs every five years is necessary for commercial buildings, also known as fixed wire tests.
