Electric Installation Condition Report (EICR)
What we do?
At EICR Landlord Certificates, we are experts at providing electrical certification and testing services. We work in a close capacity with landlords, property owners and estate agents to provide electrical safety certificates. EICR Landlord Certificates has the complete range of testing facilities, from electrical testing, electrical safety certificates, fire alarm testing, emergency lights testing and PAT testing. One we complete the testing and survey, we will present you an electrical installation condition report, otherwise known as an EICR. The EICR determines whether the property and its systems have passed the inspection or failed it. Recommendations may also follow, in the case where there is room for addition, removal, upgrade or improvement.
What is an EICR report?
A Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is the certification given to a new or used electrical system that certifies that the system is safe, secure and usable. All reports should be in accordance with BS7671, which has a recommended time of 5 years between each testing and new certification.
Are There Different Types of EICR reports?
Contrary to popular misunderstanding, there is only ONE type of EICR report. The misunderstanding or confusion has been created due to the various names that circulate the industry. Read below to differentiate:
Visual Condition Report: Just visual inspection, but no report and no EICR is provided
Periodic Inspection Report: Older version of the EICR
Electrical Installation Certificate: Provided when a new circuit or a full installation has been done
Electrical Safety Certificate: Nothing of this name exists but people use the term due to it’s generic words
When And Why Should I Get an EICR?
For domestic and rental properties EICR issue for five years.
