What is the EICR?

EICR stands for ‘electrical installation condition report‘. It is the result of an electrical inspection of the state of the electrical wiring throughout your property. At the end of the inspection you are issued with an electrical certificate aka. the EICR. This outlines whether your installation is safe, or whether any issues that make it dangerous have been found. Issues that leave your installation in an unsafe and dangerous state will mean you need to carry out urgent repairs. Non-dangerous issues are also flagged up, but won’t necessarily prevent your electrical safety certificate from being issued. It is not intended as a fault-finding exercise, rather an assessment of the state of safety of your electrical installation.

Who should have an EICR in Bromley?

Landlords, businesses and public buildings require certification by law, the interval between electrical safety tests varies, according to the situation. Homebuyers and sellers are under no legal obligation at the time of writing, but it is recommended that house wiring is inspected at least once every 10 years. If you are selling a house, it can help buyers or, if you are a buyer, having an electrical installation safety test can help put your mind at ease about the state of the electrics in your purchase, particularly if the property is one of the older ones in Bromley.

What is checked during the EICR inspection?

Whether any equipment or circuits are being overloaded
If there are any potential electric shock or fire risks in the installation
Find any unsuitable DIY or cowboy electrical work
Highlight any lack of bonding and earthing
Provide an important record of the state of the installation at the time of the inspection

The report includes comments and a classification code and the EICR will state if your installation is satisfactory or unsatisfactory and why. Codes C1 and C2 indicate aspects of the electrical system that are dangerous or potentially dangerous. Code C3 indicates an improvement is recommended but is not mandatory, so it does not result in an ‘unsatisfactory condition’ result. A further code, F1, indicates further investigation is required. This prevents a satisfactory condition from being reported.
