EICR Reports

The importance of maintenance

Insurers tend to require a current, satisfactory Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) as a condition of the cover, to certify that fixed wiring is in a safe condition, so as to reduce the risks of individuals being electrocuted and possible electrical fires. Landlords must provide a new EICR for new tenants before their tenancy starts. If you have long-standing tenants you must provide a new EICR at a minimum of every 5 years.

We at Elite Electrical can undertake an EICR, for any of our domestic or commercial clients, no matter how large or small the installation may be.

What is an EICR?

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a formal document that contains the results of an assessment of the safety and condition of an electrical installation. The assessment is usually carried out by a qualified electrician or electrical engineer, and involves a detailed inspection of the electrical installation, its components and devices. The report is intended to highlight any potential safety hazards or defects with the installation, and to provide recommendations for remedial action where necessary. EICRs are typically required by law, and are used to demonstrate compliance with safety regulations and standards.
