Our electricians are all qualified to inspect and test electrical installations and issue the appropriate safety certificates for domestic, commercial or industrial premises - we can help.
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a certificate that details the safety and overall condition of all the electrical installations and fittings in a property. The report is produced following an in-depth assessment carried out by a qualified electrician. The electrician will complete a visual inspection and perform some tests on installations to confirm that everything is functioning safely and is compliant with minimum regulatory standards. Where the electrician identifies any potentially hazardous defects, they will note this in the report with the appropriate recommendation code and advise the landlord of any required remedial work. The certificate will also list the date by which the next inspection is due.
An EICR covers fixed wire installations only. The testing of portable appliances, which plug into fixed wire installations, is done separately - see below.
Currently there is no legal requirement for portable appliance testing (PAT) to be carried out. However, business owners and landlords do have a legal responsibility to ensure electrical equipment is maintained and in safe condition. Failure to do this could result in prosecution of accidents caused by a faulty electrical appliance.
It is therefore advised to carry regular portable appliance testing (PAT) as the best way of showing that maintenance and safety checks have been carried out to meet the legal responsibilities.
