EICR Certificate

Electrical Installation Condition Report – This is the process that you need to regularly test your entire electrical distribution system to ensure it’s full safety and compliance, not only to stay within current regulations, but to keep your staff and visitors safe.

What is an EICR ? 

An EICR also known as a Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) or Periodic Inspection is a report on the condition of an existing electrical installation to identify (in order of priority) any deficiencies against the national safety standards for electrical installations.
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 states that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury or harm must be maintained and kept in a safe condition.

What Happens During a Periodic Inspection?

Our team of qualified electrical engineers will assess both the safety and performance of your electrical installation. The first part of the testing is called the ‘visual assessment’. The engineers will be looking for damaged cables, sockets and switches amongst all other parts of your wiring systems.

Next, we disconnect the electrical installation from the incoming mains supply and perform ‘dead testing’. This process is to identify any issues with poor connections or cable damage that coudn’t be seen easily whilst completing the visual assessment.

The engineers will then complete the ‘live testing’ part of the assessment. This includes testing the RCD’s (residual current device) to make sure that if your electrical installation developed a fault at any time in the future; your RCD would disconnect the power within the specified time limit.

Earthing and bonding is then both inspected and tested, this is to make sure that the earth protection within your installation is sufficient and working as it is designed to.

What Certification will I receive after an EICR?

On completion of the testing you will receive an EICR certificate. This will be marked as either ‘Satisfactory’ or ‘Unsatisfactory’.

Any issues or faults found during the EICR are highlighted on the report and categorised as follows:

  • FI – Further Investigation required to determine the issue
  • C1 – Immediate Danger to Life, immediate attention required
  • C2 – Potentially Dangerous – attention required
  • C3 – Improvement Recommended

If the report is marked as ‘Satisfactory; then there is nothing more to do until the renewal date. Should the report be marked as ‘Unsatisfactory’ then we will then supply you with a free no obligation fixed price remedial quotation for anything that we feel needs attention to bring your installation in line with the current regulations and for your peace of mind.

Once all the remedial works are complete we will provide you with a ‘Minor works’ certificate. A minor works certificate indicates that you have completed the required work. Your certificate is then valid for between 1-5 years depending on your business type. Read more about the frequency of testing with our guide to EICR
