New Installations (New Circuits)
As per requirements of the Part P building regulations any new installation should be tested prior to any being energised. WCS always work to the latest standards so we will always test your installation and provide an EIC to prove the work has been carried out in accordance with the current building regulations. This certificate is then registered online with NAPIT (our Part P agents) ….. Please note these certificates are considered valid for 10 years after which it is recommended that you have an EICR carried out.
Minor works certificates are be issued where an existing circuit is altered, i.e. by adding or moving new sockets or lights. These certificates are to prove that the work has been carried out in accordance with electrical regulations.
The Electricity at Work regulations 1989 require employers to ensure that any equipment with the potential to cause injury must be maintained. Although these regulations do not specifically state that a PAT test must be carried out it is often a good idea to do so as a visual check may miss potential dangerous faults. Landlords are also required to ensure any appliances are safe to use.
WCS can offer a full PAT testing service from just a few items to complete office blocks and multi-tenancy buildings. Prices available on request.
EICR Testing (Periodic)
An Electrical Installation and Condition Report (previously known as Periodic Inspection Reports – PIR) is carried out to ascertain the condition and safety of a existing electrical installation. It is recommended that any rented accommodation has an EICR every 5 years or prior to a new tenant moving in. It is also recommended that any employer has their installation checked regularly as per their requirements under the Electricity at Work act.
Prices for EICR are subject to the size of the installation. Please call 01903 905 703 for details.
