Electrical installation condition report (EICR)

Here at A Team Electrical Services, we carry out both domestic and commercial EICRs. Our NICEIC-approved electrical contractors can conduct timely and efficient EICRs with appointments to suit the customer or tenant and to make it as hassle free as possible.  We will ensure that the electrical installation and all fixed wiring is safe and compliant. The report we produce is accurate, detailed, and clear and will list any deficiencies, including recommendations and repairs that will bring the installation up to standard.

What is an EICR?

An EICR (electrical installation condition report) which was formerly known as a periodic inspection report involves testing the entire electrical installation, including all fixed wiring to ensure that it is safe, correctly installed, and properly maintained.

This is a series of tests including a visual inspection, dead testing and live testing to assess whether your electrical installation meets current national safety standards as set out in BS7671.

The EICR is the formal document produced at the end of the test, pointing out any defects in the system against the UK standards.

We offer an exceptional level of service and professionalism. Our local electrical contractors can carry out EICRs at short notice and for very competitive prices.

Included in the price of the EICR will be a full test report, circuit charts, defects list rated C1, C2 and C3, remedial works required and associated costs of remedial works which you can compare against other quotations

How often do we need an EICR?

EICR certification

Once all accessible circuits have been visually inspected and electrically tested, a report is issued which we endeavour to produce within 24 hours. Any defects or non-compliances are coded as follows:

If the report does not meet the necessary requirements, an “unsatisfactory” certificate will be issued. We will let you know what repair/remedial work is required to enable a satisfactory report to be applied and we will also be able to quote you for the work required. Once this work has been carried out, a satisfactory EICR or an EIC (if the consumer unit has had to be replaced) will be re-issued by us.

If the installation is considered to be in a good condition and complies with the necessary regulations, then a “satisfactory” certificate can be applied and a date for the next inspection will also be entered on the certificate.
