An eicr report is a periodic inspection report on a property's safety relating to its fixed wiring.
Eicr reports are conducted by qualified electricians. It is highly recommended you have an EICR inspection carried out every 10 years for your domestic property. Rental properties have an interval of every 5 years or change of tenancy.
We check the condition of your wiring for signs of wear and tear and compliance with the wiring regulations(bs7671). A number of tests are carried out to make sure circuits are operating within specified parameters. Faulty and old wiring is one of the main causes of electrical fires in the home, which can have catastrophic consequences.
You can reduce the risk of a fire by regularly checking your cables, switches and sockets, to see that they are in good condition.
When homeowners or landlords receive their report, they must have any highlighted faulty or outdated wiring work replaced or fixed. This ensures the house is abiding by the latest UK electrical wiring regulations and the wiring installation is safe.
