FAQ's & How To
What is an electrical safety inspection?
An electrical safety inspection or Electrical Installation Condition Report, EICR for short is much like what an MOT is for your car, to check the condition and safety of the installed electrical system to determine if the electrical installation meets the minimum requirements as set out in the current edition of BS 7671 Wiring Regulations and to ascertain if the installation is safe for continued use.
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) should be carried out at intervals of at least every 5 years for domestic rental properties, the electrical inspector may recommend the next EICR is carried out sooner than 5 years depending on factors such as the current condition and age.
An interim inspection is a visual only non-intrusive inspection which should be carried out at intervals of at least every 12 months or at change of tenant (whichever comes first). The interim inspection is to identify if there has been any visible damages or wear and tear since the last inspection.
What is an EICR?
An EICR Electrical Installation Condition Report previously known as a PIR Periodic Inspection Report or as some may call it, an electrical safety inspection is an inspection and testing of the electrical wiring in an installation such as a domestic property, commercial office or industrial factory to ascertain if the installation is safe for continued use and meets the minimum requirements of the wiring regulations.
An EICR should only be carried out by a suitably qualified and experienced electrician / electrical inspector.
The inspection will include a % sample visual inspection by removing various sockets, switches and light fittings for inspection.
The testing aspect of the EICR is a sequence of physical testing on the wiring system using approved test instruments.
Just because some thing works does not mean it is safe, installed to a good standard or satisfies the requirements of BS 7671.
What is an Interim Inspection?
An Interim Inspection is the regular visual inspections of the electrical system to check for any damages, wear and tear and that no unauthorised electrical work has been carried out since the last inspection. The Interim Electrical Inspection is to supplement the (up to) 5 yearly Electrical Installation Condition Report.
Keeping records of all interim electrical inspections and electrical installation condition reports is a way to prove compliance to the relevant regulations and laws which state an electrical installation must be kept and regularly maintained in a safe working order.
- The Electrical installation is in a safe working order at the beginning of a tenancy.
- The Electrical installation is kept in a safe working order throughout the duration of a tenancy.
- Supplied electrical appliances are kept in a safe working order and have the relevant safety marks.
