What is an EICR

 

An Electrical Installation Condition Report has been named, has it better describes the inspection & testing carried out on the existing electrical installation. It is important to carry out an EICR to establish the condition of the installation and see if it meets the latest safety standards set out in the current BS7671.

  

Electrical Installations, as with everything else, deteriorate over time. And quite often, people say, it works so it must be ok. An electrical installation can be compromised in many ways, by age, wear and tear, corrosion, physical damage, excessive electrical loading, plus environmental conditions such as damp (even flooding) and heat (or fire). Only careful inspection by a well trained eye carrying out condition reports on a regular basis can such problems be identified and preventative and or remedial action taken.

  

It is recommended that you should have a full electrical inspection carried out every three to ten years depending on type of premises, its use and previous expert advice.

 

When might i need an EICR

  

There are several reasons you may request a condition report of the electrical installation, such as when selling or buying a property, or carrying out major renovation works to your own home such as a conversion or large extension. If you have had a fire or flood, you may also need to have a report carried out on the installation, not just for insurance, but for your own peace of mind to ensure the installation is still in good condition.

   

If you are a Landlord renting through Housing Associations and councils, you will need an EICR as a mandatory document before you can let the properly. I also advise that any Landlords that have not had the electrics tested in the last five years, should really have an EICR carried out.

   

How long does it take  and what is involved

  

An EICR in a domestic installation can last anywhere from a couple of hours to a whole day it really depends on the size of the building, the type and amount of electrical accessories, number of consumer units and the amount of testing required by you the customer.  Some larger installations especially commercial premises can take days or even weeks. While the report is being carried out, the power will need to be isolated and electrical equipment either disconnected or switched off to allow safe inspection of electrical equipment and certain electrical test to be carried out. We will always warn you in advance anway incase any computers or other similar equipment are switched on or you are in the middle of something. We always try to cause has little inconvenience as possible.

   

The EICR

 

Upon completion of the survey, an 6 to 7 page report will be issued and any safety issues or non compliances with the current 17th edition regulations will be noted. Any observations will be given a code and a brief detail to highlight the severity and the outcome of these observations will determine whether the report is satisfactory or unsatisfactory.

  

What do the codes mean

  

Code C1 ‘Danger present’: There is a risk of injury and that immediate remedial action is required to remove the dangerous condition.

  

Code C2 ‘Potentially dangerous condition’: Urgent remedial action required, this should declare the nature of the problem, not the remedial actions required.

  

Code C3 ‘Improvement recommended’ This code more often than not implies that while the installation may not comply with the current set of regulations, complies with a previous set of regulations and so is deemed to be safe although this safety can be improved upon.

  

A C1 or C2 code will mean a unsatisfactory report.

  

We are always happy to discuss any queries or questions about the EICR either before or on completion of the report.
