Electrical Testing and Periodic Inspections

Peak Power can undertake repairs plus new electrical installations, and associated testing, in domestic and commercial housing. This is some of the typical work we undertake:

Electrical Testing of Installations undertaken

  • Peak Power will undertake “initial verification” or “minor works” testing for all the installation services undertaken. Certification will then be issued to the customer as required by the Building Regulations (Part P) and the Wiring Regulations (BS7671:2018, Amendment 2020).

Electrical Condition & Inspection Reports (ECIR) for Landlords

Electrical Condition & Inspection Reports for Domestic Dwellings:

  • An ECIR is recommended for all domestic dwellings and will identify risks or hazards associated with the electrical system of domestic dwellings. Approximately 350,000 injuries a year result from electrical incidents, so it a good investment for any property owner.

  • Peak Power can provide ECIR services to owners of private domestic dwellings or prospective purchasers of such houses.

  • An ECIR is not currently legally required to be provided by an owner selling their house. However, the following should be noted:

  • A house vendor may be committing a criminal offense if electrical installation work under taken since 2005 does not meet Part P of the  Building Regulations

  • The Law Society standard TA6 Property Information Form (required to be completed by the vendor before the sale completion) requires a declaration from the Vendor that the building being sold meets the requirements of the Building Regulations and to specify any electrical work undertaken since 2005.

  • Many house building and contents insurers require the policyholder to ensure that the electrical wiring is maintained to a satisfactory standard to prevent faults.

  • The Wiring Regulations: 2018, Amendment 2020 recommend that periodic inspections are undertaken and an ECIR issued (clause 135.1)

  • An ECIR should be periodically updated (maximum 10 years) and a sticker listing the date of the next inspection should be located on the outside of the Consumer Unit. See the IET Wiring Regulations: 2018, clause 653.3.

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Test)

  • PAT tests are legally required in offices and rented housing where portable appliances are provided to tenants. Our team are fully equipped with sophisticated PAT testers to undertake the work quickly and efficiently. All tested appliances will be labelled as required by the regulations.
