All electrical installations have the potential to deteriorate over time, due to a number of stress related influences so it is essential to inspect, maintain and repair all electrical systems. Failure to implement a regular program for could result in serious consequences as well as affecting your insurance policies.
The best way to know if your electrics are safe is to get a qualified electrician to carry out a test and inspection known as an Electrical Inspection Condition Report – EICR.

How often should I get my electrics tested?
An EICR at a domestic property is recommended every 10 Years but it is not uncommon that this gets ignored for much longer periods.
Commercial & Industrial
Commercial & Industrial properties are recommended to be Inspected & Tested at least every 5 years or change of occupancy. Some businesses can be busy environments so it is essential that regular planned maintenance and repairs are made on a frequent basis to keep the electrical installation in a satisfactory and safe condition.
For Landlords, new regulations state that the rented property must be Inspected & Tested at least every 5 years but it is also recommended with change of tenancy to be certain that previous occupants haven’t damaged or altered the installation. More information can be found on the government website.
What should I expect from an EICR?
When we carry out an electrical inspection, we do both visual checks and electrical tests. Visual checks include looking behind a percentage of sockets, switches, light fittings and other electrical equipment for damage and deterioration. We check your distribution boards to make sure they are in good condition and comply with current regulations, correct safety earthing arrangements, polarity and functioning of all RCD & various Trip Switches.
If we find the condition of the installation to be low standard, we would need to investigate further so we can deliver an accurate report of the true condition. Anything that we feel is not safe will be photographed and included in the report so you are aware of any issues and we can also provide you with a free quotation for any repairs.
Once the test and inspection is complete, we will send you a full personalised PDF digital report. Printed versions are available on request.
