Fixed Wire Testing UK Regulations
Fixed wire testing regulations in the UK state that such testing is required as part of the Electricity at Work Regulations and the Health and Safety at Work Act. The Electricity at Work Regulations state that “all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as reasonably practicable, such danger”.

Fixed Wire Testing Procedure
Fixed wire testing is a comprehensive process that covers the inspection of all electrical installations within a property. From wiring to circuit boards, appliances and plug sockets, a fixed wire testing procedure is a crucial part of ensuring a building’s safety.

Fixed Wire Testing Report
A fixed wire testing report contains a number of different sections that must be filled out. The sections include:
- Client details – the name and address of the client and property.
- Purpose of the report – whether it has been requested by the client or suggested by the contractor, it will be detailed here.
- Details of installation – this includes the address of the premises, the type of premises it is (industrial, commercial, residential), the age of previous installations and the date of previous inspections.
- Extent of the installation and limitations of the inspection and testing – here, the contractor details what they were able to do and what they were unable to do. For example, they may say they could inspect each electrical installation, but they were unable to reach other areas.
- Declaration – this is signed by an electrician and a verification officer to state that the inspection has been carried out properly.
- Summary of condition of the installation – this will either be ‘satisfactory’ or ‘unsatisfactory’. This informs the customer whether or not additional work or improvements are required.
