Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) are necessary because all electrical installations deteriorate due to a number of factors:

i.e. damage, wear, tear, corrosion, excessive electrical loading, aging and environmental influences.

The IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) require that EICR of electrical installations is carried out at such intervals that are consistent with the type of installation, its use and operation, the frequency of maintenance and the external influences upon it.

To comply with these regulations, we would recommend that you seriously consider a report on your premises. Electrical Testing inevitably causes some disruption on the site due to the requirements for disconnecting electrical circuits at various times during the testing. For this reason, careful planning and time management is a necessity.

The results and extent of electrical testing are recorded on an EICR and provided to the person ordering the inspection. The report includes the extent of the work, limitations, details of defects and dangerous conditions, and schedules of inspections and test results. Immediately dangerous conditions are rectified or reported without delay to the relevant duty holder. Other recommendations and observations are reported using a numbering system to indicate the severity of each observation.
