Electrical Installation Condition Report
An EICR Report (Electrical Installation Condition Report) identifies any damage, deterioration, defects and/or conditions which may give increase to danger, along with observations for which improvement is recommended.
An EICR is a more detailed report than just a Visual Inspection and will involve the testing of various circuits which will require turning off the electricity at the main supply.
This allows us to identify any possible hidden defects or issues that cannot be identified during a Visual Inspection.
The purpose of an EICR Report (formally known as periodic inspection and testing), is to determine, whether the installation is in a satisfactory condition for continued service. Our highly qualified and experienced electricians will conduct a number of tests on each distribution board, which will requires each circuit to be isolated for a short period of time.
For most commercial businesses, the frequency of testing will be every 5 years, however, higher risk environments will require testing at least every 3 years.
If the EICR being conducted is taking place at your business, our electricians will work closely with you to identify which circuits will be affected during the testing process to minimise the impact on your business.
This may include providing electrical testing and fixed wire testing outside of your normal working hours – Should the testing be required to be outside of normal working hours, the charge will be slightly higher.
