EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report)

Landlord Electrical Certificates, Kent
If you are a landlord renting properties you are required by law to have periodic inspections every 5 years, or on a change of occupancy, it helps to ensure that the property is safe for occupation and the current electrical installation is safe and poses no danger to the tenants.
Electrical testing can be carried out annually also and allow any departures from regulations to be picked up and any necessary remedial work to be undertaken to ensure the properties are safe for occupancy.
We can offer special rates to landlords to carried out agreed annual checks on their properties for both gas and electric.

Electrical installation condition reports(Electrical Testing) (EICR) in Kent
Fixed Wire Testing (EICR and PIR)
What is Fixed Wire Testing?
Fixed Wire Testing (also referred to as Periodic Inspection Report) is a procedure that’s undertaken to evaluate and report on the condition of an electrical installation to help ensure its safety.
Therefore, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommend periodic electrical inspections and testing should be undertaken at all places of work. To minimise risks and ensure your electrical installation complies with all relevant regulations, Elecheck provides comprehensive Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) to comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations and BS7671:2008.
Why does my office, workplace or Property need an Electrical Installation Condition Report?
This is a question we get asked a lot.
It is recommended by the Institute of Electricians that any electrical wiring or installations be inspected and tested at least once every 5 years by a qualified electrician to comply with Health and Safety Regulations (1974), Electricity at Work Regulations (1989) and Provision and the Use of Work Equipment Regulations (1998). Wiring deteriorates over time and an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) will identify any faults so they can be rectified so no harm can come to colleagues, customers or the general public.
Your insurance could be invalid without an EICR
The aim of the Electrical Installation Condition Report is to review all electrical fixed wire installation in its environment and make sure that there is no risk of injury.
By having a Electrical Installation Condition Report completed by one of our qualified electrician, your business will comply with:
- Health and Safety Regulations
- Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
- The Electricity at Work Regulations
- HSE requirements and ISO standards
- Insurance company requirements
- Fire risk assessment
The GOOD news is that you don’t need and EICR every year!

|Change of Ownership|
|Change of Tenancy|
|Change of Use of Premises|
|To Verify Continued Complaince with BS7671|

What work is completed during an Electrical Installation Condition Report?
An Electrical Installation Condition Report is an in-depth inspection and test of the existing electrical installation and is reported on a form that complies with the current wiring regulations, BS7671:2008 as amended in 2011.
The first part of the inspection is to visually inspect all the accessible electrical accessories like socket outlets, switches, etc. 10% of these items will be inspected internally by opening them up to expose the wiring and terminals to establish if there is anything to suggest poor installation or quality of wiring.
All electrical equipment is then inspected for the presence of bonding conductors, the correct type and location of switchgear and that the installation is being used correctly.
Once the inspection phase has been completed, a detailed test of each circuit is carried out to determine that the safety measures that have been put in place will operate correctly if an electrical fault ever occurs. This includes determining that the earth fault path is effective enough to result in automatic disconnection of the electric supply in the event of a fault, that the wiring is in good condition and that the residual current device (RCD) operates quickly enough to avoid any danger to colleagues, customers and members of the public.
Electrical Installation Condition Report is the answer!
Once we’ve completed the inspection and testing of all the above, you’ll get a Electrical Installation Condition Report. Our report will identify any deficiencies in your electrical set-up against the national safety standard for electrical installations. This report can then be used to confirm you have complied with all regulations and it can be kept for any Health and Safety audits.
