As its title suggests, an EICR is a report not a certificate. It relates to an assessment of the in-service condition of an electrical installation against the requirements of the issue of BS 7671 current at the time of the inspection, irrespective of the age of the installation. An Electrical Installation Condition Report differs greatly from PAT Testing and Fixed Appliance Testing as it is a detailed inspection on the internal wiring of the building not the appliances.
The results and measurements taken during the Electrical Installation Condition Reports are clearly recorded in a detailed report and appropriate recommendations, if applicable, are made for any damage, deterioration or defects observed that may give rise to danger to be remedied, such that the installation may continue to be used in safety.
At Easitest our engineers have the latest wiring regulations test and inspection certification. We can also contact any tenants or letting agents for access, collect keys or arrange a suitable time at your convenience.
Our EICR include a full inspection and testing of the fixed wiring of a property including:
> Earth bonding to gas and water
> Correct consumer unit
> Damage to cables, sockets, switches etc
> Full instrument test of the circuits
> A 6 page report will be compiled using the Fast Test Software
Any faults will be flagged up on page 2 of the report and listed with a priority rating C1-C3. These figures refer to the following status:
C1 – Danger present: Risk of injury- immediate remedial action required
C2 – Potentially dangerous-urgent remedial action required
C3 – Improvement required.
A quotation for any remedial works will be provided with the report along with the Invoice for the inspection. Reports can be e-mailed to multiple precipitants if required to assist the process of moving home or new tenants.
