What is EICR (Electrical installation condition report)?
An EICR is an inspection on the condition of an existing electrical installation, to identify (in order of priority) any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations.
Tests are also carried out on wiring and associated fixed electrical equipment to check that it is safe. A schedule of circuits will also be provided, which is invaluable for a property.
Why EIRC or periodic inspection needed?
Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and age. It is important for the person responsible for the maintenance of the installation to be sure that the safety of users is not put at risk, and that the installation continues to be in a safe and serviceable condition.
When is a periodic inspection needed?
It is recommended that periodic inspection and testing is carried out at least every:
– 10 years for a domestic installation
– 5 years for a commercial installation
– 3 years for caravans
– 1 year for swimming pools
Other instances when a periodic inspection should be carried out are:
– When a property is being prepared to be let
– Prior to selling a property or when buying a previously occupied property
Who should undertake EIRC?
