PERIODIC INSPECTION & TESTING (EICR)Officially known as EICR (Electrical inspection Condition Report) for an Electrical Installation sometimes called hard wiring tests or 5 yearly electrical inspections. Under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 all electrical installations in the workplace have to be periodically inspected and tested in accordance with BS7671, the frequency of this inspection varies somewhat depending on the type and age of the installation (wiring) the maximum period between inspections is 5 years for a commercial premises and 10 years for a domestic household. To decide whether your premises has undergone such an inspection a label has to be fitted to the fuse boards indicating the date of the last inspection and the next due date. If these labels are not present it is likely that the inspection has not been carried-out or may have not been carried out properly. We use the very latest methods to carry out this potentially disruptive work and issue the N.I.C.E.I.C Periodic Electrical Inspection Report Certificate (EICR) together with a recommendations report for remedial improvements as required. It is becoming increasingly important to mortgage lenders that this test is also carried out prior to a mortgage offer being submitted when buying a property in the same way, as the structural survey is required. It is deemed that the surveyor generally will not be fully conversant with current electrical requirements and therefore this survey has to be carried out by a specialist contractor who is accredited by the N.I.C.E.I.C.
