Quicklight welcomes new electrical wiring compliance report
Thatcham, UK, 22nd March 2012 – Quicklight is now providing its customers with even more thorough electrical testing as a result of implementing the new Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), introduced by the IET on 1st January. Whether customers need a routine five-year inspection, or are considering altering or adding to electrical installations, the new EICR provides the most comprehensive evaluation of electrical conditions to date.
Alastair Galbraith, technical director at Quicklight welcomes the new report. “The EICR, which replaced the Periodic Inspection Report, gives customers more information by making clear the failures or defects that need urgent remedial action,” said Alastair. “Even though there was no requirement to use the new report straight away, our engineers have been using it since January so that our customers comply with the new regulation.”
The amendment to wiring regulation BS7671:2008 was instigated by the need for safer practices. As businesses grow and technology develops, adding new electrical equipment can increase the load above the safe limit for the building’s wiring. The EICR not only examines deterioration in systems but also evaluates its safety, which helps to prevent the risk of fire or injury.
Quicklight’s flexible electrical testing solution is designed to make light work of what might otherwise be a major undertaking. If required, Quicklight performs electrical testing during shutdown periods or out of hours. This minimises the disruption caused by having to isolate parts of installations at different stages during the testing.
