Electrical Installation Testing

All aspects of the electrical installation are inspected and tested for strength, integrity and compliance with the IEE Regulations in force at the time the system was installed and to the current regulations where applicable.

Not only will any faults or defects found be recorded, but where possible, suggestions for cost effective solutions will be included. Thereby enabling you to accurately and cost effectively target any required remedial work to bring the system up to a safe standard.


Summary of Terms

An electrical installation is the wiring system of a building from the mains position to items of electrical equipment, sockets, light fittings and everything in between and is the system in which all the electrical equipment is, or may be, electrically connected to a common source of electrical energy. Testing of electrical installations is also referred to as BS7671, periodic inspection, landlord testing, Electricity at Work, fixed appliance testing, fixed equipment, fixed machine, hard wiring, electrical wiring, fixed wiring testing, mains, circuit or insurance testing.


In-service Inspection and Testing (PAT)

The PAT test is an important verification tool. The whole process is known as "in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment."  This routine check of all electrical appliances ensures that all your equipment meet the strictest safety requirements!


PAT testing includes:

  • visual inspections
  • earth-bond tests
  • insulation-resistance tests
  • load tests
  • earth-leakage test
  • functional checks


Non-compliance with PAT standards can lead to severe punishments for corporations and landlords, ranging from fines to imprisonment. We therefore recommend that all relevant portable appliances are tested regularly.


We look forward to discussing PAT testing with you in more detail!
