Typical Fixed Wiring Testing Procedure

The ‘Electricity at Work Regulations 1989’ in Regulations 4(1) and 4(2) lay down the requirement to ensure that an electrical installation should be designed, installed, constructed and maintained in a safe manner at all times. The basis for periodic inspection and testing is derived from Guidance Note 3 of the ‘IEE Wiring Regulations BS7671:2008’.

Our inspection and testing of an electrical installation generates a Periodic Inspection Report that is a condition report supplemented by the testing results. It is conducted by a team of two competent qualified inspectors; the inspection highlights any significant defects on an electrical system. These may include; exposed conductors or terminations, broken covers, conduits or trunking: the lack of earthing on conductive parts, inadequate support or damage to cables.

The testing of an electrical installation follows BS7671:2008 and comprises of:

  • P.C continuity
  • Ring circuit continuity
  • Insulation Resistance
  • Polarity
  • Earth fault loop impedance
  • Prospective fault current
  • Operation of residual current devices
  • Functional Testing.
