What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?

EICR stands for Electrical Installation Condition Report and is also known as an Electrical Safety Certificate. An EICR is a comprehensive inspection that involves the testing of the wiring in your property. Once the electrical safety inspection is completed, you receive a detailed report of the condition of your electrical systems, or any remedial works required.

Our local expert electrician has to make sure your electrics comply with the BS 7671 standard of the Wiring Regulations. EICRs also help landlords meet their legal obligations when it comes to the electrical safety of their tenants. For landlords, electrical inspections and testing should be done at least every five years, unless otherwise stated on the most recent EICR report (or if the real estate agency suggests otherwise).

EICRs can either be satisfactory (which means your property passes the electrical standard required) or unsatisfactory (in which case your property fails to comply with the regulations and requires remedial works to bring it up to standard).

The findings of the report are as follows:

C1 – Danger present. Risk of injury. Immediate action required.

C2 – Potentially dangerous. Urgent remedial action is needed.

C3 – Remedial action is recommended but there is no immediate risk.

FI – Requires further investigation without delay.

Electrical Installation Condition Reports reveal the following issues:

Why do you need an EICR?

Regular electrical inspections and testing (EICRs) are mandatory to ensure that your property is electrically safe, and you avoid life-threatening risks such as fire hazards or electrical shocks. In case there are any fault findings, the electrician will provide a quote for the remedial work required to ensure your property complies with the regulations.

Electrical Safety Certificates for Landlords and Buildings

If you are a landlord, EICRs are mandatory by law for rented properties so your tenants are not exposed to any electricity-related risks. Generally, this means a new EICR is required every five years, but most letting agents ask for an EICR before a change in tenancy. If you are a landlord, we can help you get an electrical safety certificate in North London and satisfy your legal obligations.

Commercial buildings also require electrical safety inspections due to the increased wear and tear on the electrical installations. We can ensure your commercial space (such as a shop, restaurant, or office) is safe and complies with local regulations. Let us be your first choice when you think of an electrical inspection in North London.
