What is PAT Testing?

PAT testing is completed in compliance with the IEE code of practice and HSE guidelines and involves a visual inspection to check the appliance casing and flex for wear or damage. Plugs are also checked for damage, correct wiring and ensuring that the correct fuse rating is used. After the equipment has passed a visual inspection it will undergo a series of electrical tests using a fully calibrated electrical PAT tester. A label will be attached to each appliance indicating the test results any item failing the tests will be easily identifiable and should be removed from service until repaired. Detailed test results are generated and compiled for each electrical appliance and stored in our database. An appliance register, certificate and detailed test results are provided and should be retained for future reference.

Maintain Electrical Safety

The law does not state that PAT testing must be carried out although it does state that the workplace must be electrically safe. Government guidelines state that PAT testing is the best way to ensure electrical safety. Some insurance companies will reject a claim should it be proven that a fire or accident occurred due to faulty electrical equipment that has not been properly maintained. The courts can also issue large fines or even imprisonment should a case be brought forward.

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is the inspection and testing of an electrical installation.

Also known as:

  • Fixed Wire Testing

 

  • Periodic Inspection and Testing

 

  • Electrical Testing

 

  • Hard Wire Testing

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is used to determine if an electrical installation is in a safe working condition and fit for continued use. This is done by:

  • Visual inspection of circuits, control gear and protective devises

 

  • Electrical testing of circuits to determine if there is an adequate earth

 

  • Electrical testing to determine if there is any insulation breakdown

 

  • Polarity testing of circuits and all other appropriate tests where required

 

  • Testing of RCD’s

do i need an EICR?

Electrical Installation Condition Reports are a method of ensuring you meet The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 which is statutory, meaning it is the law.

It is a report of the condition of your electrical system highlighting any defects or non-compliances.

All electrical installations deteriorate with age, other factors include damage, wear and tear, overloading of electrical circuits, corrosion and environmental influences.

Legislation requires that all electrical installations are maintained in a safe working condition and The Electricity at Work Regulation 1989 requires that:

As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far is reasonably practicable, such danger.

One of the best ways to ensure that electrical systems and equipment are safe is to have regular inspections such as an EICR and PAT Testing.

You may be requested to have a fixed wire test by a licensing authority, public bodies, insurance company, mortgage lender and/or others.

Other reasons to have an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) include:

  • To assess compliance with BS7671 (wiring regulations)
  • To prevent any costly claims against you if an incident occurs
  • Change of occupancy of a premises
  • Change of use of a premises
  • Additions or alterations to the installation
  • Change in the electrical loading of the installation
  • Possible damage from example flooding
  • Renting a property
