EICRs will check the overall condition of the electrical installation in the property, and it will help pick up on any faults or electrical damages, and also any wiring that doesn’t meet the current regulations.
Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR)
What you need to know
An EICR is an Electrical Installation Condition Report. It is a formal document that is produced following an assessment of the electrical installation within a property. It must be carried out by an experienced qualified electrician or approved contractor. Usually this means they will have taken a course covering periodic inspection and testing and are registered with the JIB or a scheme provider such as the NICEIC plus has a good working knowledge and experience of electrical installations.
There are many reasons why a householder might request an EICR and indeed they are highly recommended where proof may be required to show an electrical installation is safe. One of the more common reasons an EICR is requested is in rented accommodation where an EICR is the most straightforward and least time-consuming method of proving an electrical installation is safe.
An EICR is also recommended in all domestic homes every 10years to check the condition of the electrical installation and ensure there is no deterioration, however there may be reasons why an EICR would need to be done more often like in a rental accommodation its every 5 years or change of occupancy.
