Electrical Installation Condition Reports
What does an EICR involve?
The inspection will:
- Show if any of the electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
- Reveal poor electrical work
- Discover potential safety risks such as electrical shocks
- Establish the adequacy of earthing or bonding
- Check the serviceability of equipment
- Determine the extent of any wear and tear and damage
All of our electricians are highly trained and have obtained the City and Guilds 2391 qualification for Period Inspection & Testing.
An EICR Certificate will be issued following inspection & testing of the electrical installation.
Landlords & Businesses
EICR for Landlords
Under the terms of The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 landlords, or agents acting on their behalf, are responsible for tenants’ electrical safety. This means carrying out an EICR every five years, or at each change of occupancy, whichever is sooner.
According to the Electrical Safety Council private tenants are at a greater risk of electrical fatality and accidents than the population at large.
EICR for Businesses
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 employers are responsible for employees’ health and safety in the workplace. To this end, businesses should have an EICR carried out on their properties at least every five years.
Companies that fail to protect workers from electrical shocks and burns are regularly prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive.
Workplace & Home
In the workplace an EICR will additionally:
- Assess the adequacy and labelling of notices
- Determine how changes in use of the premises could lead to deficiencies in the electrical installation
EICR for Homeowners
In less time than you might imagine, electrics in the home can become damaged and worn through wear and tear.
So, homeowners should get them tested at least every five years to check whether they are still safe to use. If appliances aren’t safe, they could be a fire hazard or give you an electrical shock, causing injury or even death, as well as damage to your property.
