PAT testing / EICR Reports

Portable Appliance Testing – Electrical Install Condition Report

As an NICEIC approved electrical contractor, your work will be backed by a test certificate. Airius can provide electrical installation condition reports to ensure your electrical infrastructure is in good working condition.

Regular testing and reporting is essential for ensuring your electrical systems and devices are safe and effective. Both Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) and electrical installation condition reports (EICR) are vital for meeting your legal obligations, maintaining your reputation, and protecting the safety of your employees, customers and visitors.

Electrical inspections are typically conducted annually for public spaces such as gyms, offices and retail environments, while industrial and agricultural facilities can be inspected every three years. Residential, commercial and educational centres can be inspected every five years. Homeowners are advised to have an electrical installation condition report (EICR) completed at least every ten years.

Airius engineers conduct a range of testing in many different settings. We can provide a free, no-obligation quote for testing your infrastructure and appliances. Get in touch if you would like to explore your options.

Portable appliance testing (PAT)

While portable appliance testing is not a legal requirement, you are obliged to ensure that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause harm is properly maintained and safe. PAT testing is an efficient and effective method for checking the appliances in your commercial, residential or industrial premises, which is why it has become the default way to protect people and reduce the legal risk associated with shocks and fires.

Electrical installation condition reports (EICR)

While electrical installation condition reports are not specifically a legal requirement, business owners and landlords are liable for injuries sustained within their premises, and an EICR is one way to reduce risks of electrical shocks or fires.

Electrical installation condition reports check:

  • Earthing and bonding efficacy
  • Fire and shock prevention equipment
  • Damage or wear to electrical fittings and accessories
