EICR ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CONDITION REPORTS

We offer electrical safety certificates in Leicester on all domestic properties. It is a legal duty for all landlords to ensure all electrical equipments in the property are safe. This should be maintained throughout the whole tenancy. This should cover light fixtures and plugs, as well as internal wiring and the whole of the electrical installation.

These new Regulations require landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected and tested, at least every 5 years. Landlords have to provide a copy of the electrical safety report to their tenants, and to their local authority if requested.

It is mandatory for all landlords now to make sure the electrical installations in their rented properties are safe. These regulations came into force on 1 June 2020 and form part of the Department’s wider work to improve safety in all residential premises and particularly in the private rented sector.

WHAT IS AN EICR?

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CONDITION REPORT

AN ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CONDITION REPORT (EICR) IS A REPORT CARRIED OUT TO ASSESS THE SAFETY OF THE EXISTING ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION WITHIN A PROPERTY AND IS USED TO DESCRIBE ITS CONDITION.



Parts of the system that are reported on include the fuse box (also known as consumer unit), protective bonding, lighting, switches and sockets etc. Its purpose is to confirm as far as possible whether or not the electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition for continued service.

WHAT WILL AN EICR SHOW?

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CONDITION REPORT

The eicr will show whether the electrical installation is in a satisfactory or unsatisfactory condition and will detail a list of observations affecting the safety or requiring improvements.

UNSATISFACTORY CODES:

  • C1 - Danger present, risk of injury, immediate remedial action required
  • C2 - Potentially dangerous, urgent remedial action required.
  • F1 - Further Investigation required

SATISFACTORY CODES:

  • C3 - Improvement recommended

WHEN MUST ACTION BE TAKEN?

Action is required if the EICR issued is unsatisfactory. If an EICR contains a C1, C2 or F1 code it will always be deemed unsatisfactory. If a C1 is discovered, the electrician, with permission, will often take action to make safe the dangerous installation. Then as is also the case with a C2 and F1 code, it will be the owner’s responsibility to organise a repair, replacement or further investigation.

The electrical safety standards in the private rented sector (England) regulation require a landlord to arrange any required work to be completed within 28 days.

A C3 code, improvement recommended, is given to aspects fo the installation that do not present danger but will result in an increased safety standard within the propter. Occasionally a C3 code may be attributed to an item that does not comply with current regulations but did comply at the time it was installed. A C3 code does not mean the installation is unsatisfactory and should not impose a requirement to have work carried out on the owner.
