What is a Electrical Installation Condition Report? (EICR)

All electrical installations deteriorate over time due to general wear and tear. An inspection and test of an electrical installation whether it be domestic, commercial or industrial is known as a Electrical installation condition report- EICR for short.

A EICR report is a report on the condition of an electrical installation - a report on how safe the electrics are. It is essentially an MOT for your properties electrics. The report is usually a three plus page document (depending on the size and type of the property to be inspected & tested) and consists of:

• Details of the electrical installation
• Items inspected and tested
• Observations & recommendations
• Test results

If you are considering buying a property then it would be wise to invest in a EICR before making your final decision, or if you are letting it then you want to know it's safe for your tenants, you want to know that the property you are buying or letting is electrically safe. A surveyors report will not tell you if a property is electrically sound, although they may recommend having a EICR.

Why Have a EICR report?

The resonsibility of the property condition and saftey is with the landlord. In recent years council have put in legislation on how landlords must have their property up to a certain standart in order to rent them out. This is where an EICR Report will explain to the landlord if the property is safe or if their is work needing done to bring the property up to current legislation. There are many things that are either not seen or known about the general state of an electrical installation and these should not be overlooked, Just because a light comes on when a switch is operated does not mean that it is 100% safe. A wire may be loose, a fuse or CB (Circuit Breaker) may be over rated and not protect the cable which may overheat (this especially happens when too many adaptors are used in one socket) or it could be a DIY attempt gone wrong, all of these could start a fire.

What is involved in a EICR Report?

Firstly and most importantly an inspection of the electrics is carried out. Are there signs of damage, wear and tear or ageing components? The consumer unit or fuse board, main supply, earthing, sockets, switches and light fittings are checked to make sure the cables supplying them are installed properly and are suitable for the intended purpose and continued use. Cables that are concealed in walls under floors or in conduit or trunking however are not inspected, as this would not be practical. Any observations that are made during the inspection are noted and given a code, listed below:

• Code 1 Requires urgent attention
• Code 2 Requires improvement
• Code 3 Requires further investigation
• Code 4 Does not comply with the current British Standard BS7671 - this does not mean it is dangerous.

Remedial Works

Your report will include details of any deviations from current standards together with a list of any remedial work deemed necessary. If required we will quote for remedial works, but you are under no obligation to get this work done by ourselves.

Just because it WORKS, It doesn't mean it's SAFE!
