What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?
An Electrical Installation Condition Report is a formal report and document that is produced after an assessment of the electrical installation is conducted for a property.
The inspection and provision of the report can only be conducted by a qualified electrician or contractor. This means that the inspecting engineer will have undertaken appropriate update courses, have suitable experience in periodic inspections and possess good working knowledge of various electrical installations and inspecting and testing of them.
Do I Need an Electrical Installation Condition Report?
With a valid electrical installation condition report in force, you know your electrical installation is safe and fit for continued service which keeps your workforce safe and will satisfy your insurance requirements along with other statutory requirements or compliance requirements.
What is Inspected During an Electrical Inspection?
During an EICR following aspects of the electrical system are assessed:
-The adequacy of the earthing and bonding
-Damage or wear to any components that could affect the safety of the electrical installation
-Identification of any issues which could be a fire hazard
-Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
-Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards
-Identify any defective electrical work
-Check for correct operation of protective devices
-The presence of adequate identification and notices.
-Any changes in the use of the premises that have led to, or may lead to, unsafe conditions.
It is vital that an EICR be performed by a suitably experience and qualified electrician as many potential issues or faults with your electrical installation cannot be discovered by the naked eye. Only the detailed inspection and testing performed during an EICR can confirm the safety and adequacy of your electrical installation.
