Installation Condition Report - EICR
31.12.2011, formerly known as Periodic Electrical Inspection ...
Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) require that periodic inspection and testing of
electrical installations is carried out at such intervals as are consistent
with the type of installation, its use and operation, the frequency of
maintenance, and the external influences upon it.
It is recommended
by the Institute of Electrical Engineers, that buildings over five years
old are subjected to a full inspection, and as a minimum should continue to
be inspected and tested every five years; a report of inspection should be
issued, together with test results and any recommendations.
of the Work
entering into an agreement for electrical inspection and testing of a
building under your control it is a fundamental requirement that the extent
and limitations of the inspection and testing are fully described. It
is recommended that the following be agreed prior to beginning the work,
and we can assist you in determining your exact requirements for inspection
As it is
neither practical nor possible to inspect all parts of an installation, we
will agree a sampling process. This is normally in the order of
10%-20% of all accessories, fittings and control equipment.
For much of the testing the electrical system will be switched off.
If this is a problem we can arrange the work at times when this is more
agree before commencing the work the amount of down time that can be
tolerated and arrange a provisional program for switching off – totally,
and individual areas or distribution boards if required.
