Electrical inspection condition report (EICR)

Whether you find yourself in the role of a landlord, homeowner, or business owner, it is essential to regularly inspect the electrical systems on your property to ensure their proper functioning. Effective July 1st, 2020, new private tenancies in England necessitate inspections and tests conducted by a qualified professional before the initiation of a tenancy. Failing to comply with this requirement may result in penalties of up to £30,000.

Understanding EICR: An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) serves the purpose of identifying defects, deterioration, damages, or conditions that could pose potential dangers. Additionally, it provides recommendations for improvements within the property. The Landlord’s Electrical Safety Certificate is considered a valid EICR.

What the EICR Report Reveals:
In accordance with gov.uk guidelines, inspectors utilise the following classifications to highlight areas where landlords need to undertake remedial actions:

  • Code 1 (C1): Indicates the presence of danger and a risk of injury. The electrical inspector may address any C1 hazards to ensure safety before leaving the property.
  • Code 2 (C2): Signifies potential danger, requiring further investigation without delay.
  • Code 3 (C3): Recommends improvement without necessitating immediate remedial work for the report to be considered satisfactory.

When to Obtain an EICR:
Electrical installations naturally degrade with wear and age, posing potential risks to a building’s occupants. According to the UK standard for electrical installations, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Wiring Regulation BS 7671, the following recommendations apply:

  • Landlords: Conduct an EICR test every 5 years, during tenancy changes, or when acquiring a new property for letting purposes.
  • Homeowners: Schedule an EICR test every 10 years, unless the property features a swimming pool, in which case, annual tests are advised.
  • Business Owners: Arrange for an EICR test every 5 years.
