Fixed Electrical Inspections & Electrical Installation Condition Reports

Fixed electrical wiring will deteriorate over time, which makes the electrical installation condition  report so important. You will need to make sure that you are regularly testing your entire electrical system within your business premises or offices. This means that you are ensuring the complete safety of your electrics, whilst also staying fully compliant; securing yourself an electrical condition report when and where required. Should you fail to keep your electrics up to date and in good working order then you could be putting the health of your staff and employees at risk. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 states specifically that any and all electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury or harm must be maintained and kept in a safe condition. It is therefore your responsibility as a business owner to secure the relevant and necessary electrical condition report certificates.

Yes, once your test(s) with us have been completed you will receive alongside all relevant documentation, an up to date electrical installation condition report. We are also able to offer a free no obligation quote for any work that we have identified that needs fixing, amending or repairing as per the electrical condition report. If you decide to proceed with us at PTS Compliance then, once the works have been completed, we will provide an EICR certificate which will remain valid for between 1-5 years (dependent on your business type).

What Exactly Is An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?

An electrical installation condition report (EICR) consists of an inspection on the condition of an existing electrical installation or system. The directive of an EICR is to identify (in order of priority) any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations; ensuring safety and standard of working environments in order to keep staff and customers/visitors safe at all times.

What Is Done During An Electrical Installation Condition Report?

For many years inspection and testing carried out during an electrical condition report was known as a periodic inspection report. From the end of 2011 that was changed, as was the format of the report so that it had become the electrical installation condition report. An EICR is an in-depth inspection and test of an existing electrical installation and is reported on a form that complies with the current wiring regulations, BS7671:2008 as amended in 2011. All of the accessible electrical accessories (socket outlets, switches, etc.) are visually inspected, with 10% of them being inspected internally. This means that the accessories are opened up to expose the wiring and terminals to establish if there is anything to suggest poor installation or quality of materials.

The Installation

The installation is also inspected for the presence of bonding conductors, the correct type and location of switchgear and we will also look to identify whether or not the installation is being used correctly.

Detailed Test

A detailed test follows, where a range of tests are carried out on each circuit to determine that the safety measures that have been put in place will operate correctly in fault conditions. This includes determining that the earth fault path is effective enough to result in automatic disconnection of the supply in the event of a fault, that the wiring is in good condition and that the residual current device (RCD) operates quickly enough to avoid any danger to the users of the installation.
