PAT Testing

Ensuring all electrical appliances in use in your business are up to date with PAT Testing mitigates risks of electrical issues, ensuring safety, and compliance with standards and insurance policies as well as providing staff, and customers with care. 

EIRC Report

An EICR Certificate is an ‘Electrical Installation Condition Report’ that is provided to Landlords and estate / lettings agents on completion of an electrical inspection. An inspection and report s issued in accordance with the national standard for the safety of electrical installations, BS7671: 2018.

The responsibility to arrange and obtain an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is of the landlord, not the tenant. EIRC tests must be conducted either before a new tenant moves into a commercial property or within 5 years of the last test.
