Electrical Installation Condition Report – EICR

Until 31.12.2011, formerly known as Periodic Electrical Inspection

The IEE 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.

Extent of the Work
When 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 and testing.

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 convenient.

We will 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.

Cost of the Work
This will be largely based around the extent of the work as described above, and as such we cannot quote fixed prices for such variable possibilities. But to give you some idea of costs we would aim to complete an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) of an average domestic dwelling house, please see our Price List.

On completion of the Inspection and Test a report will be provided, detailing the condition of the installation, results of all tests carried out, a list of any faults, and recommendations and a conclusion as to relative safety of the installation.

In conjunction with requirements from the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) and Local Authorities, the following inspection and testing timescale for let properties:

Flats & Houses

Routine Inspection: Annually
Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR): Every 5 years

HMOs & Bed Sits

Routine Inspection: Annually
Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR): Every 3 years
