I am interested to see read what everyone's opinion is on this topic.

I work for a nationwide testing and inspection company, carrying out EICR's on large scale buildings. I have been doing this for a long time and there is a distinct pattern that is emerging and that is price per circuit is getting lower.

I am hearing that their companies who can honestly say they can fully test a circuit for £4.50 - £6.00. My question is how? There are more and more compliance companies popping up, give the same BS that they can do it for this price and we do the job right. Not at £4.50 you are not.

So for them to charge that price they need to generate over a hundred tested circuits a day per man, to start making money. (Base on SME)

Reading past forums, it was evident that £10 - £15 per circuit was acceptable. So if it was possible to test one hundred circuits, surely they would have done it back then.

How far will the price go down and the output these companies need go up.When it comes to testing and inspection, you are not going to get the same quality of test at the prices mentioned above as to someone who is charging ten pounds a circuit.

In my opinion, there are too many duty holders or decision makers out there who have no understanding of the dangers of electricity and implications it can have when it starts to deteriorate. Pricing per circuit is not the correct way of doing it in 2017. Its two low and it is a real insult to people who want to do a good and honest job.
