EICR: Essential for your Home or Business
Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs) are essential for ensuring that your electrical systems are safe and functional. An EICR is a detailed inspection and testing of your electrical installations, conducted by a qualified electrician. The purpose of an EICR is to identify any potential electrical hazards and recommend necessary repairs or upgrades.
An EICR involves a comprehensive assessment of your electrical installations, including wiring, circuits, sockets, and switches. The inspection is carried out in accordance with the BS7671 wiring regulations, which are the national standard for electrical installations in the UK. During the inspection, the electrician will test your electrical systems for safety and compliance, using specialized equipment such as insulation testers, loop impedance testers, and RCD testers.
Once the inspection is complete, the electrician will provide you with a detailed report that outlines any electrical issues found during the inspection, along with recommendations for repairs or upgrades. The report will also indicate the condition of your electrical installations and whether they are safe and functional.
An EICR is typically recommended every 3-5 years for residential properties and every 1-3 years for commercial properties. However, it is important to note that the frequency of the inspections may vary depending on the age and condition of your electrical installations, the type of property, and the nature of its use.
Having an EICR conducted on your electrical systems is not only important for ensuring the safety of your property and its occupants, but it is also a legal requirement. Landlords, for example, are required by law to have an EICR conducted on their properties every 5 years, or whenever there is a change in tenancy.
