Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)
This is an inspection on the condition of an existing electrical installation, to identify (in order of priority) any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations.
Our electrical inspection will:
- Determine the extent of any wear and tear or damage
- Discover any potential safety risks such as electric shocks
- Establish the adequacy of earthing and bonding
- Inspect the equipment for serviceability
- Reveal any poor electrical work
- Show if any of electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
Are your electrics 100% safe?
If appliances aren’t safe they could be a fire hazard! They can give you an electric shock causing an injury or even death, and they can also cause damage to your property. Our electricians will inspect your wiring system completely. This includes your switches, sockets, light fittings, switchgear and controls to see whether they need replacing.
Electrical Installation Condition Report for Landlords and Letting Agents
Under the terms of The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 landlords, or agents acting on their behalf, are responsible for tenants’ electrical safety. This means carrying out an EICR every five years on a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO), or at each change of occupancy, whichever is sooner.
According to the Electrical Safety Council private tenants are at a greater risk of electrical fatality and accidents, than the population at large.
To meet these requirements a landlord will need to carry out regular basic safety checks to ensure that the electrical installation and appliances are safe and working.
Electrical Installation Condition Report for Businesses
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 employers are responsible for employees’ health and safety in the workplace. Businesses should therefore have an EICR carried out on their property at least every five years. Companies that fail to protect workers from electric shocks and burns are regularly prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive

To meet these requirements a landlord will need to regularly carry out basic safety checks to ensure that the electrical installation and appliances are safe and working. The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 requires that all mains electrical equipment including white goods, cookers, toasters, etc provided in rental accommodation, regardless of whether they are new or second hand must be safe.
A PAT test is an essential part of any businesses Health & Safety Policy. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) requires, ALL employers in the UK to ensure that work equipment is both safe and fit for purpose. For this to be achieved a PAT test must be carried out.
