What is the purpose of an Electrical Installation Condition Report

The fundamentals of an EICR are:

  • To carry out an inspection of the electrical system in order to make sure your electrical installation is safe and up to current standards.
  • To check the wear and tear on the electrical system that might affect the safety.
  • To inspect components of the electrical installation to make sure they meet the IET Wiring Regulations 2020
  • To identify any potential faults that could lead to an electric shock.
  • To keep records of the electrical installation’s condition for any future inspections.

Types of EICR.

Visual EICR – is a report where no testing is carried out,  this and is only suitable if the installation has been tested beforehand.

Periodic electrical inspection (EICR) – is carried out every 1, 3, 5 and 10 years depending on the premises if it’s a domestic or commercial property. These are scheduled inspections to check whether the electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition for continued use, by the use of electrical inspections and test procedures.

We have recently redone our living room and ProElec did a fantastic job installing LED down lights, replacing sockets and even mounted our new TV on the wall, cutting a channel inside the wall to feed HDMI cables through so there are no exposed wires. They did a really neat job, cleaned up the very little mess that was caused and were friendly and reassuring throughout. I’ll definitely call them first when I need any more electrical work - in fact, I’ve already booked them for another job.

We recently had these guys over to our property in Widnes and received a very very good service. We had a number of quotes from various more local businesses and nothing seemed to come close to our budget or quality of work we seen on the website. I will and already have recommended Lee and his team to Friends and family. Thank you again for a 1st class service

Lee and his son wired up the summer house that was built in the back garden. They used armoured cable from the consumer unit to the back garden. The armoured cable was attached to the side of the house very neatly, and the sockets were put into the Summer House with an RCD. Lee and his son also put spot lights inside and outside the Summer House. The cabling and trunking were done exceptionally neatly. Lee's work is exceptional, his attention to detail is very good, he is very neat and he is conscientious off the work that he does. I would highly recommend any electrical work to be carried out by Lee and his son.
