What is our EICR test service?
EICR, or Fixed Wire Testing, has been one of our core services for more than 20 years. We have developed high-quality techniques and systems that set us apart from our competitors.
EICR test is the inspection and testing of electrical installations to make sure it is safe and compliant with the electrical safety standards in the UK. Once the test is complete, we offer our customers an updated Electrical Installation Condition Report. The report contains details about defects, if any and the subsequent remedial works required.

Our fixed wire testing engineers are trained, knowledgeable and experts in spotting hazards within your electrical system. The areas of testing include the main supply point, light fittings, sockets and other writing accessories. Since we work with a team of electricians and engineers with the NICEIC certificate, you can count on us to help you every step of the way.
What is an EICR certificate?
An Electrical Installation Condition Report or Fixed Wire Inspection and Test is a legal requirement for every UK building and workplace as stipulated in the Electrical Work Regulations 1989. The British Standards BS 7671 18th Edition recommends that every electrical installation is subject to regular EICR test and inspections.
Regardless of the age of the electrical installation, they must be under regular inspections and testing to ensure they are in a safe condition. These electrical installations must be tested by qualified personnel, such as Sparkylocal engineers.
Since electrical wiring, circuits, sockets, mains panels and distribution boards are subject to damage and deterioration, they must be tested and inspected periodically. The inspections may involve visual and electronic procedures to make sure you are compliant with the laws and regulations. All the findings of the inspection and the possible repairs and fixes are mentioned in the EICR report. Our technicians can even help you with the repairs and other necessary electrical services.
