EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report)

Our EICR electricians are highly trained electrical engineers with NICEIC and CHAS qualifications, who are also professionals in delivering commercial, industrial and domestic Electrical Inspection Condition Reports (EICR). We offer periodic tests, which is a full inspection of your electrical and installation systems. Our electrical engineers are fully trained in conducting EICR inspections and this service can be supplied on its own or additionally be added on to our full electrical solutions, so you can ensure your electrics are in an excellent condition. 

What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) – formerly known as an electrical Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) – is an assessment on the safety of electrical installations, fixtures and fittings in your premises, whether this is a commercial, industrial or domestic setting.

An EICR is an in-depth inspection of all the internal wiring of a building and fixed electrical equipment, to check they are safe. Most EICR inspections include the testing of but is not limited to, consumer units/fuse boards; all wiring and electrical accessories; boilers, panel and storage heaters; hard-wired smoke detectors and fire detectors. From the report, if any defects are found the EICR report will then suggests the necessary changes to correct the problems.

What our EICR Tests Involve

On arrival of our electrical engineer, they will carry out an EICR report, which will check if your property’s electrics have any faults that cannot be identified through a visual check. The report may bring up a number of faults such as electrical circuits being overloaded or overheating during use. If any electrical circuit is not properly installed – for example, without earthing or bonding to safely secure the electrics – it may potentially cause a fire or shock hazard. This is where the safety benefits of an EICR test will identify any defective electrical work within the system and allow it to be repaired before it becomes a hazard.

Our electrical engineers will also carry out a visual check to give you a quick analysis of how safe your property is, prior to the EICR test. This will look for broken sockets and light switches, damaged cables and scorching/burn marks as a result of overloading the power outlet. However, even when an EICR test is not being carried out we recommend a visual check is completed at regular intervals in between the more in-depth EICR tests.

After the EICR test has been completed, our office will produce a certificate for you. This will detail any damages, deterioration, defects, or other dangerous conditions. It will also highlight anything that doesn’t match the current safety standard.

If the EICR test comes back as negative, the EICR will be classed as “unsatisfactory” meaning that the required work needs to be done, without delay, to remove the risk to those living or working within the building.  The “unsatisfactory” report will detail which electrical system(s) failed the test and the work required. 

The “unsatisfactory report can bring up the following codes:

  • C1 – ‘danger is present’, risk of injury and immediate action is required.
  • C2 – potentially dangerous and corrective action is needed urgently.
  • C3 – improvement of your electrical system is recommended. C3 is the only classification code that can appear on a report and still pass the EICR test.

Once your electrical system has been corrected and passed the inspection, you will then be provided with an EICR Certificate of Safety, giving you peace of mind.For more information about an EICR test for your home or business setting, please call us on 01243 859 856.

EIRC for the Commercial, Industrial and Domestic

EICRs for Homeowners

  • EIRC tests are often required when buying a new home. Mortgage providers and surveyors may recommend you obtain an EICR to ensure there are no defects, failures, or problems with the electrical supply in the new property.
  • If selling your home, you may want to carry out an EICR test to ensure that the property is safe before it is placed on the market.
  • We recommend carrying out an EICR on domestic properties every 10 years to check the condition of the electrical installation and ensure there is no deterioration. With visual checked being carried out as often as every year.

EICRs for Landlords

As a landlord, there may be a few times and reasons why you would want to carry out an EICR test and these can include:

  • Rented properties are usually required to have a EICR test carried out as a condition of obtaining landlord insurance. If you fail to maintain the electrical integrity of your premises you could be deemed negligent in the event of an electrical incident. If a tenant is harmed due to faulty wiring or fittings, they could take legal action against you.

EICRs for Business, Commercial and Industrial Premises

As a business owner, there may be a few times and reasons why you would want to carry out an EICR test and these can include:

  • EICR tests must be carried out on a regular basis to ensure that your premises’ electrics comply with the Health and Safety and Work Act.
  • An EICR ensures compliance within current regulations and keeps staff and visitors safe.
  • Insurance companies request proof of EICR to ensure premises meet current regulations and health and safety laws.

In commercial and industrial settings depending on the use of the setting, it is recommended that a test is carried out between 1-5 years. A public premise like a school or retail shop should carry out an EICR test every year.

We provide Electrical Installation Condition Reports to domestic houses of all sizes, offices, shops, schools, hospitals, restaurants, pubs, hotels, clubs, cinemas, theatres, industrial units, and factories. We are also able to carry out regular electrical testing, perform electrical diagnostics and fault finding, and issue electrical certificates on commercial and industrial electrical installations.
