What is an EICR and do I need one?

I wanted to discuss the significance of an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) with you today. The EICR is a crucial document resulting from an assessment of the electrical installation in a property. It serves as proof that any provided appliances are safe, bear at least the CE marking, and assures the safety of the equipment in use. It is imperative that this assessment is conducted by an experienced and qualified electrician or an approved contractor.

An EICR provides valuable insights into the condition of the electrical system, ensuring there is no deterioration that could lead to potential hazards. This, in turn, guarantees the safety of your tenants.

Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

While it is generally recommended to conduct an EICR every ten years, for rented properties and businesses, we advise a more frequent interval of every five years. Engaging a registered electrician for this process is essential, and the duration typically varies between 3 to 4 hours based on the property’s size and the number of circuits requiring testing.

Upon completion of the periodic inspection and testing, a comprehensive schedule will be compiled, highlighting:

All identified defects, damages, or deterioration of equipment and wiring.
Potential hazards arising from any non-compliance with the National Rules for Electrical Installations.
Recommendations for necessary consequential remedial works.
Your attention to these critical details ensures not only compliance but, more importantly, the safety of your tenants.

Should you have any inquiries or require further assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out.

We are committed to supporting you in ensuring your tenant’s and property’s safety.
