Electrical Testing & Inspection

Electrical Testing & Inspection Northern Ireland

As a registered NICEIC electrical contractor, PAC Electrical specialises in providing electrical inspection and testing services to our customers, who are located throughout Ireland and the UK. These services include full certification of new installations, as well as detailed reports on the condition of existing electrical infrastructure.

All testing and inspection of electrical installations is carried out by our fully qualified and highly experienced Electricians, who are fully compliant with the BS7671 18th Edition Wiring Regulations, with appropriate reports or certificates issued, including:

  • Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC) – for new electrical installations.
  • Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) – a safety inspection of existing electrical installations, required by law, that indicates whether your electrical installation is safe and compliant at the time of testing.
  • Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificate (MEIWC) – for an alteration to an existing electrical installation.

All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use, so they should be inspected and tested at regular intervals to check that they are in satisfactory condition. This means carrying out an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), sometimes referred to as ‘fixed wire testing’‘periodic inspection’, or an ‘electrical safety certificate’.


  • Every 10 years for a domestic premises.
  • Every 5 years for a rented premises, or on change of tenancy.
  • Every 5 years for a commercial premises.
  • Every 3 years for an industrial premises.

Under Health and Safety legislation, such as the Electricity at Work Regulations, employers are responsible for ensuring the safety and health of their employees, as well as members of the public who may be affected by their activities or omissions. As this includes electrical safety, electrical testing and inspections are obligatory for every employer, regardless of their sector.

Keeping your electrical inspection and test certifications up to date helps to ensure compliance with your legal duties. It is also important because failure to undertake periodic inspection and test can invalidate your insurance. Without the proper certifications and reports in place, in the event of an electrical fault that causes injury or property damage, you may not be covered.
