All businesses must have emergency lighting to operate automatically in the event an emergency and give sufficient illumination to enable all occupants to evacuate the premises safely.
It is a statutory requirement as part of the regulatory reform (fire safety) order 2005, that all businesses must have emergency lighting.
All emergency lighting systems should be tested monthly.
The duration of the test should be sufficient to ensure that the luminaires operate correctly.
This can be carried out by a trained member of staff and they will need to complete a monthly logbook.
For the annual test, all the light will need to be switch off for the full duration of 3 hours. Any lights which do not last the duration of this test will be marked onto a lighting floorplan and a quote will be sent to rectify.
We can carry out testing and remedial works out of hours, to avoid any downtime to your business.

5 Year EICR Testing
Positive Electrical offer the full range of electrical tests and inspections.
We are NICEIC approved contractors and are able to certify all of our work and report on existing installations to check if they are electronically sound.
Commercial electrical installation condition reports (EICR) are used to check the safety, operation and compliance of an electrical system. Like domestic reports, these are needed every 5 years on most commercial properties. As a commercial property owner, it is your responsibility to ensure that the building is in good condition and electrically sound.
Over time all electrical systems degrade from general use. Light switches or sockets become damaged, connections becoming loose and cable deterioration all of which can be avoided by carrying out regular maintenance.
Some of these issues are major risks i.e. loose connections, which cause fires and the loss of so much more than your property.
Electrical condition reports are a must if you are renting a property for business use. By law you are not required to have this report but they are usually required for insurance purposes. If any harm was to come of a person in your commercial property due to the electrical system, without a valid condition report there would be grounds for legal action against you.
A commercial EICR is a report on your fixed wiring, checking the safety and operation. These report’s differ greatly from PAT testing which tests portable appliances are safe to use. The final EICR report provides clearly recorded results, measurements and values taken during the inspection. From these results we are able to give appropriate recommendations on any damage or deterioration found (if any), that are needed to get the system to a serviceable and safe state.
If you are a business owner then you may find that in order to achieve compliance with insurance you may require a PAT test.
If you are a business owner then you may find a PAT test is required to validate your insurance.
If you are a business owner then you may find a PAT test is required to validate your insurance.
We can carry out testing out of hours to avoid any downtime to your business.
All results will be recorded onto an electronic certificate and will details each appliance and their locations.
What happens if the EICR fails
Any observations are recorded and assigned a code indicating its degree of non-compliance or severity.
A code 1 item indicates immediate danger requiring attention.
A code 2 item indicates that urgent improvement is required.
A code 3 item indicates that improvement is recommended.
If an installation has any code 1 or code 2 items present it cannot be deemed satisfactory.
Should your EICR fail you will be required to carry out Code 1 & Code 2 works in ordered to gain a “satisfactory” certificate.
We will send a separate quote for Code 3 items however these are just recommendations and are not required in order to gain a “satisfactory” certificate.
We can carry out all remedial works and a detailed quote will be sent with a breakdown price per item, and we clearly explain any observations and how we will rectify them.
Any damage that may be caused from the works will also be advised so you are fully aware of any remedial costs.
Types of Certificates we offer
- Landlords certificates
- Certificates for home buyers
- Insurance building certificates
- PAT Test certificates

Things to consider when selecting a company
Please be wary before you search the internet trying to get the cheapest price.
A lot of companies will just have the main director registered with a governing body such the NICEIC or NAPIT however their engineers are not registered nor do they have the required qualification to carry out the test. All of our engineers are registered with NICEIC and can sign off their own work and issue certificates.
We offer full range of electrical test and inspections for domestic and commercial premises.
These works can be scheduled “out of hours” if required and will can provide you with a complete breakdown of faults along with quotations to correct any faults found.
We send a copy of the certificate electronically the same day and take photos to help provide a clear explanation with the report.
As a Landlord do i need a EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report)
Landlords are required to provide electrical installation certificates to show appliances and new equipment is safe, but there is no legal requirement to have it regularly inspected. However, there are several pieces of legislation that landlords could fall foul of if they provide faulty electrics to tenants. Legislation such as the Landlord and Tenant Act require landlords to respond to any requests for repairs and a claim could also be brought under the Consumer Protection Act if a property is found to be unsafe.
Why should i have a EICR
An EICR is like an MOT for your vehicle.
We will carry out a series or tests to make sure the electrics comply with current regulations and are fit for purpose.
An EICR will uncover any faults or potential problems with your installation.
Should we find any faults, they will be detailed and recorded onto a certificate with photographic evidence to help explain the issue.
If you are a landlord or business owner you man find you require an EICR for compliance as your insurance policy maybe invalid by not having one in place.
How often should a EICR be carried out
The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommends 10 years as the maximum period between tests but this relates to the period between the initial inspection (when the installation was first installed) and the first periodic inspection/test.
Test thereafter are recommended by the Electrical Safety Council every 3-5 years or on a change of tenancy
