Electrical Installation Condition Reports – also known as EICRs, Periodic or Electrical Testing, or PITs – are a statutory requirement for landlords, letting agents or employers. This is an in-depth test of the entire electrical system to check it meets current regulations. After we have completed the test we will provide a detailed report, in plain English, highlighting any areas that may require further attention.

The frequency of electrical testing varies, depending on the environment.

From our experience of periodic testing in Norwich, most landlords and employers do not always meet the required frequency of testing. Most commonly, in Norfolk, many landlords are not aware that Electrical Condition Inspection Reports (EIRCs) need to be completed every time there is a change of tenancy.

PAT or Portable Appliance Testing in Norwich is a very competitive market. Our years of experience and hard work make our PAT testers the first choice for PAT testing in Norwich and Norfolk.

Portable Appliance Testing is the term used to describe the routine inspection of portable electrical appliances, to ensure they are safe for use. This applies to any electrical appliance which can, or is intended to, be moved whilst connected to an electrical supply.

PAT Testing Regulations apply to both landlords and employers, and the frequency of testing depends on the intended use of the appliances. To book an appointment or to find out more please call our friendly team.

Emergency lighting must be installed and in working order in all workplaces. It may sound obvious, but it is essential to assist in the safe evacuation of the building in the event of a power failure.

The emergency lighting regulations that apply to the UK are the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997, which state that 'Emergency routes and exits requiring illumination must be provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in case lighting fails'. It is therefore the responsibility of all employers to ensure that these systems are suitably maintained and checked for safety and compliance. All emergency lighting systems should now be installed, tested and inspected in accordance with the Emergency Lighting BS 5266 standard.

It is essential that your emergency lighting system is checked every year by a qualified and experienced electrician to ensure that the internal battery in the emergency fittings will keep emergency exits illuminated should a power failure occur.

We offer emergency lighting testing, throughout Norfolk, which gives a comprehensive report outlining the details of the installation system, circuit information and inspection results, an inventory of the items tested and a list of the defects or deviations from the BS 5266 standard regulation.
