Electrical installations deteriorate over time and require regular inspection and testing to determine if they are still in a safe condition. Commonly referred to as ‘periodic inspection and testing’, once completed you will be issued with an Electrical Installation Condition Report that will detail:
Any circuits and equipment that are overloaded
Potential electric shock and fire hazard
Defective electrical work
Highlight any earthing or bonding issues
The EICR will also provide a schedule of circuits, which may not have been available or changed since the original installation was carried out.
How Often Should Periodic Inspections be carried out?
Inspection and testing should be carried out at the change of (or before the start of) a new tenancy, or before buying/selling a previously owned property.
Regular checks should also be made at 10 years for owner occupied home and 5 years for a rented home.
Reports may also be required when there is a change of use of the premises or works have been carried out.
Homebuyers are also frequently requesting an EICR before purchasing a house, in addition to the standard homebuyers survey.
