An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is an official document that provides a comprehensive evaluation of the safety and condition of an electrical installation. The purpose of an EICR is to identify any potential safety hazards and to ensure that the installation is up to the latest safety standards.
During an EICR inspection, an electrician will examine the electrical installation to identify any defects or issues that could pose a safety risk. The inspection will include an assessment of the electrical supply, the earthing and bonding arrangements, the switchgear and control gear, the lighting and power circuits, and any fixed electrical equipment.
Getting an EICR is important for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is a legal requirement for landlords, business owners, and homeowners who are selling their property. Secondly, it helps to ensure that your electrical installation is safe and compliant with the latest regulations. And finally, it can help to avoid the risk of electrical fires, accidents, and injuries.
