Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)
EICR’s are an essential part of electrical maintenance and safety required by law in commercial, industrial and domestic premises. A periodic inspection checks the condition of an existing installation against BS7671, the UK standard of electrical safety. Every inspection is carried by an Approved Contractor and a NICEIC Certificate is produced.
An EICR should be carried out every 3 to 10 years, depending on the location type, use of location and the condition. This may need to be carried out more regularly due to change of tenancy, insurance requests and environmental conditions.
