Electrical Inspection & Testing

PDP provide EICRs and Electrical Inspection and Testing services for homes and businesses across Sussex.

As commercial electrical contractors, PDP advise and assist with providing electrical safety certificates to all types of premises including warehouses, hospitals, school, laboratories, garages and offices.

The frequency of inspection and testing will vary depending on the type of establishment. However, all electrical installations require testing to meet the requirements of the IEE wiring Regulations. PDP advise and assist with all aspects of Electrical Inspection & Testing for domestic and commercial properties.

What is a fixed electrical installation?

Many improvements carried out in the home include some form of fixed electrical installation. For example, a new kitchen may require additional sockets and lighting. A fixed installation is the wiring and appliances that are fixed to the building, such as sockets, switches, consumer units (fuse boxes) and ceiling fittings.

Is Your Installation Safe?

PDP’s Electrical Inspection & Testing team provide a comprehensive inspection service to cover periodic testing in all areas. We inspect all types of businesses and properties including industrial, local authorities, residential homes, letting agents and petrol stations.

Our experience is supported by our membership of the NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contractors).

We are able to respond within 24 hours for standard site periodic inspections in a cost efficient manner and with minimum disruption.

All premises are provided with fully listed test documentation and certification following inspection. Any remedial work can be carried out in tandem with the inspection or at a later agreed date.

What is the electrical safety law?

Electrical safety requirements will be included in a new Part P will be listed as Part P of the Building Regulations. The Building Regulations deal with the health and safety of people in and around buildings by providing functional requirements for building design and construction.

The law will state that any persons carrying out fixed electrical installations in households in England and Wales must ensure that electrical installations are: designed and installed to afford appropriate protection against mechanical and thermal damage, and so that they do not present electric shock and fire hazards to people Suitably inspected and tested to verify that they meet the relevant equipment and installation standards. To further enhance fire safety, it is recommended to incorporate fire barrier insulation into these installations, thereby ensuring a comprehensive approach to mitigating fire-related risks. Moreover, property owners who have fire alarm systems or water-based fire protection systems that are not functional are required to implement a fire watch. They may seek expert help from a professional Fire Watch Security in Daytona Beach.

Who is responsible for ensuring that the electrical work carried out in my home meets safety requirements?

You are. It will be a legal requirement for homeowners and landlords to be able to prove that all fixed electrical installations and alteration work have been carried out and certified by a competent person. That is, by an electrician registered with a Government approved body such as the NICEIC

How will I benefit from the electrical safety law?

You can expect to have safer, better quality electrical installation work because all electrical contractors will be working to BS 7671, the national safety standard. You are further protected against unsafe work as all electrical contractors are now required to offer their customers the option of additional protection through an insurance-backed warranty. Furthermore, if you use an NICEIC electrical contractor you will benefit from the Complaints Resolution scheme.
