What is the purpose of an Electrical Installation Condition Report

The fundamentals of an EICR are:

  • 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

Rang Lee up at ProElec and explained the job, as the lady is 92, and partially sighted. They came the next day, as they are local to us. Absolutely fine, job done and so grateful for the speedy response. Would recommend to all.

Top quality service from Lee. Instalation of the new main panel and bathroom light fittings was completed without any issues and he made sure safe working practices were followed throughout the job. Everything was explained to me regarding changes and upgrades so that I understood it all properly, and they left the work areas clean and tidy. Friendly and professional, thank you.
