TESTING, INSPECTING AND CERTIFYING
TO NICEIC STANDARDS
As an NICEIC approved contractor, we carry out all aspects of electrical testing, inspection and certiﬁcation for retail, commercial, educational and industrial properties, providing in-depth and affordable electrical condition reports.
As NICEIC approved contractors a report by D.E.S carries that much more authority – allowing you
complete peace of mind and protection from all potential dangers.
Electrical Testing is essential in making sure that all aspects of your electric circuits are functioning correctly. If you are an employer, periodic testing of all electrical appliances is required to ensure the safety of your workforce. Failure to comply with regulatory standards could lead to a penalty for non-compliance, negligence or a maintaining an unsafe work environment.
During an electrical test, any potential dangers or inefﬁciencies within the system are identiﬁed and detailed. D.E.S. will then provide you with a comprehensive report of your building’s electrical wiring system. Reports contain a full breakdown summarising the areas of your building and circuitry which DO and DO NOT meet current UK regulations. This is completed by thermal imaging which forms part of our testing procedure.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CONDITION REPORTS
Electrical Installation Condition Report (E.I.C.R.) are reports, carried out by qualified electricians, that provide an in-depth analysis of the infrastructure and safety of the wiring within a building or space.
An EICR is vitally important to each and every commercial property within the UK and is required for insurance purposes.
EICRs are especially important for businesses and landlords. In light of an accident arising from a fault on your electrical installation, having a valid EICR will show you as a responsible proprietor/employer that has taken all possible steps to maintain a safe working environment.
