New government legislation states that landlords must ensure every fixed electrical installation is inspected and tested at least every five years by a qualified person. The Regulations also state that a landlord is required to obtain a report of the results of the inspection and test, supply it to each tenant within 28 days and retain a copy until the next inspection is due.
What is an EICR?
EICR - An Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) is an official document that is produced following an assessment and
testing of the electrical installation (Consumer unit, wiring, sockets, switches etc). This is an in depth check and is usually valid for 5
years upon its completion, however this can vary due to the age and condition of the installation. During an EICR, the consumer
unit (or fuseboard), wiring and electrical accessories are thoroughly tested and inspected for faults or deviations from the current
BS7671 Wiring Regulations.
