Why does my office, workplace or Property need an Electrical Installation Condition Report?

This is a question we get asked a lot.

It is recommended by the Institute of Electricians that any electrical wiring or installations be inspected and tested at least once every 5 years by a qualified electrician to comply with Health and Safety Regulations (1974), Electricity at Work Regulations (1989) and Provision and the Use of Work Equipment Regulations (1998). Wiring deteriorates over time and an Electrical Installation Condition Report will identify any faults so they can be rectified so no harm can come to colleagues, customers or the general public.

It sounds daunting and even worse, your insurance could be invalid without an EICR

The aim of the Electrical Installation Condition Report is to review all electrical fixed wire installation in its environment and make sure that there is no risk of injury. We don’t go looking for problems like others, but simply complete the report to highlight to you any risks.

By having an Electrical Installation Condition Report completed by one of our qualified electricians, your business will comply with:

  • Health and Safety Regulations
  • Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
  • The Electricity at Work Regulations
  • HSE requirements and ISO standards
  • Insurance company requirements
  • Fire risk assessment

We can carry out electrical certificates (electrical installation condition reports), diagnostics and fault finding on electrical systems. Our engineers are fully trained and comply with all current requirements and regulations ensuring that your work is done to optimum standards.

Our electricians use the latest testing equipment to trace faults which enables them to diagnose and repair faults quickly. Once our engineer has carried out the inspection they will provide you with a report detailing any faults and recommendations for remedial works.

Note: Electrical Testing of an existing installation formally known as an Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) has now been changed to Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) due to the new 17th Edition BS 7671: 2008 Incorporating Amendment No.1: 2011.
