Electrical Testing

Chapmans Electrical, the electrical experts, serving businesses and organisations across the Birmingham and West Midlands region with electrical testing and compliance testing, periodic inspections and condition reports.

Established in 1925 as a family business, built on a foundation of honesty, integrity and a commitment to high standards and quality service. Still family run today, these principles are as strong with us today as they were 90 years ago. Chapmans is an NICEIC registered contractor and an active member of the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA). Our electrical engineers and technicians are fully qualified and certified, properly trained to the latest BS 7671 IEE regulations, currently 17th edition, courteous and even CRB checked for your peace of mind.

Electrical safety checks and periodic inspection are a mandatory requirement for landlords. On each change of tenancy, or at least every 5 years, the condition of the electrical installation should be inspected and an Electrical Inspection Condition Report (EICR) produced. Until 2012 these were known as Periodic Inspection Reports (PIR). In a commercial or industrial setting the recommended minimum frequency for electrical inspections to determine the condition of fixed wiring, fittings and the electrical installation is between 3 and 5 years and for domestic premises the recommended minimum frequency of electrical inspections is 10 years.

All forms of electrical compliance checks, inspections, testing and commissioning can be undertaken. From a single domestic premises to a large factory or housing estate, Chapmans Electrical has the expertise and experience to deliver. Our customers include landlords, managing agents, care homes, housing associations, local authorities and businesses of all sizes and from all sectors from shops and restaurants through to major industrial plants.
