ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CONDITION REPORT (EICR)

WHAT IS AN EICR?

This is an Inspection of the full Electrical System in your Property. See it as an MOT, to ensure safety. 

This can range from just a visual Inspection to a full Test & Inspection where all accessories and outlets come off the wall to check for things like: 

Loose connections, degradation of cabling, moisture ingression, issues with rodents, defective equipment, heat build up, functionality of Smoke Detectors. 

It also determines whether the equipment you have installed is now out of date and no longer offers protection against electric Shock. Electrical equipment is always changing and improving, sometimes a safety device that was installed 5 Years ago is now out of date and is no longer suitable for todays installations. 

These are things that would go unnoticed unless you have such an inspection.

Business Owners, quite often commercial properties insurance companies require an EICR periodically to ensure the safety of staff, visitors and livestock. There is also a fire risk with Electricity which could destroy surrounding businesses, Houses or vast amounts of Stock resulting in financial loss. 

DO I NEED AN EICR?

There is a number of reason an EICR is required, including: 

Selling a Property, it significantly increases the Value of your Property proving that the Electrical System is safe and up to Date. 

 Buying a Property, If the Property you are about to purchase hasn't got an EICR, wouldn't you like to know if you are about to purchase a House that may need a full rewire? 

Landlords, The laws surrounding rental properties have come a long way, protecting the tenants, one aspect is the safety in regards to electricity. Landlords now have to get an EICR at a maximum interval of 5 Years to prove the Electrical system is safe. This comes from The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020

Home Owners, sometimes just peace of mind, maybe an RCD or MCB keeps tripping for no obvious reason. Lets get it checked.

We rely on Electricity all the time, so how would you know if there is a danger present, possibly the next time you go to turn a light on? 

There should be a label on every Consumer Unit stating when the next recommended test should be done by. This is there for a reason, do you think if that is out of date and there is an issue with your electrics that the Insurance companies will pay out? 

To the left is a table of the recommended intervals of an EICR of certain types of Installations: 

The Test equipment used for this type of work has to be calibrated every 12 months to ensure the readings are accurate and the equipment we use is safe and suitable for the job in hand.  

We have a a range of resources Inspectors like myself use along with our test equipment to compare your installation to, Inspectors cannot use opinion alone. The resources we use are Guidance Note 3: Inspection & Testing written by the IET, On Site Guide to BS7671 also written by the IET, and finally The Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671 again written by the IET.
