EV charging stations - Why is it so important to test them?

As the number of Electric Vehicles (EV) in the UK continues to rise, so does the number of EV charging points. Growing numbers of organisations are installing EV chargers at their locations, and these require periodic inspection and testing to ensure they are operating safely.

Like any fixed electrical installation, Duty Holders are required under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EAWR) to ensure the safety of EV charging points. This includes maintaining EV systems to prevent danger to any person on site.

The importance of EV Charging Station Testing

  • Ensure electrical safety of users, equipment and infrastructure

  • Check that your products comply with the standards

  • Evaluate the performance of your stations

Governing bodies are investing heavily in developing and expanding electric vehicle charging infrastructure. This is creating a disjointed market with many different standards that may apply when testing and certifying EV charging station technology.

It is important to manage the safety and compliance of your EV Charging infrastructure throughout its full lifecycle. This will include overseeing the management of the charging point from installation to the day to day operation, and evaluating the fire safety risks involved. Our experienced team of engineers can support you every step of this process.
