What is an EICR Electrical Test?

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) test is a thorough inspection of the electrical systems and installations within a property to ensure they meet the necessary safety standards.

Conducted by qualified professionals, this test is crucial for identifying any deficiencies or hazards that could pose a risk to occupants.

The completion of an EICR test results in the issuance of an EICR Certificate, a critical document that validates the safety and compliance of your electrical installations.

Understanding the EICR Certificate

The EICR Certificate, also known as an Electrical Safety Certificate, is an official report generated following the EICR test. This document outlines the condition of an electrical installation, highlighting any observed damage, deterioration, defects, or non-compliances with the current safety standard, BS 7671.

 

It's a vital record for property owners, landlords, and business operators, demonstrating a commitment to electrical safety and compliance with UK regulations.

The Importance of EICR Testing

Regular EICR testing is essential for several reasons:

  • Safety: First and foremost, the EICR test aims to protect people and properties from the dangers of faulty electrical installations, such as electric shocks or fires.

  • Legal Compliance: For commercial properties and landlords, obtaining an EICR Certificate is a legal requirement at regular intervals to ensure ongoing compliance with UK electrical safety regulations.

  • Insurance: Many insurance companies require an up-to-date EICR Certificate as part of their policy conditions, ensuring that the electrical installations do not pose a risk.

Who Needs an EICR Test?

  • Homeowners: While not mandatory for owner-occupied homes, it's recommended to have an EICR test conducted every 10 years or with any change of occupancy.

  • Landlords: Required by law to ensure the safety of their tenants, landlords must have an EICR test performed every 5 years or with each change of tenancy.

  • Commercial and Industrial Properties: These premises should undergo an EICR test at least every 5 years or upon change of occupancy, depending on the business type and usage.
