An EICR (previously known as a Periodic Inspection) is a legally required report that highlights the condition of an existing electrical installation to identify any deficiencies.
An EICR will:
- Identify if any electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
- Detect any potential electrical shock risk
- Discover any fire hazards
- Find any defective DIY electrical work
- Reveal any lack of protective earth/bonding
- Detail the type of fixed wiring system and its condition
- Test residual current devices
- Discover wear and tear, damage or other deterioration
- We are fully qualified in inspection and testing and can issue all the necessary certification and carry out any repairs that may be required
There are two types of EICR report:
- Visual condition report – this doesn’t include testing, and only suitable if the electrics have been tested recently
- Periodic inspection reports – the recommended standard of service – this report ensures the electrics are both visually and physically tested, to highlight any hidden damage
All of our electricians are trained to conduct EICR reports, to help ensure your business is fully compliant with health and safety regulations.
EICR’s have been conducted in commercial and industrial facilities for many years. With it now being a legal requirement for landlords, more and more residential premises need a valid EICR. Having scheduled tests means you can ensure a facility or property is in line with health and safety guidelines.
At NLT, our in-house, qualified testers can help landlords and business owners ensure the safety of their property’s electrics. We can tailor a bespoke maintenance package ensuring electrics are regularly checked, safe and maintained to the highest of qualities.Everything you need to know about an EICR
