Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR)
The codes are used to determine whether or not there are non-compliances or faults with the electrical installation and are numbered C1 to C3. These codes are entered on the Electrical Installation Condition Report, together with a description of the nature of the fault, and will determine whether a ‘Satisfactory’ or ‘Unsatisfactory’ report will be applied to the installation.
• Code C1 ‘Danger present’: There is a risk of injury and immediate remedial action is required to remove the dangerous condition. Typical examples of this include: a broken socket, live conductors that could be touched on fitting a consumer unit (fuse board), a burnt cable due to using the wrong size of conductor or an overloaded circuit.
• Code C2 ‘Potentially dangerous condition’: Urgent remedial action required. This should state the nature of the problem rather than the remedial actions required. Examples of this include: no earthing to gas or water pipe, damaged lighting low insulation readings on cables.
• Code C3 ‘Improvement recommended’ This code more often than not implies that while the installation may not comply with the current BS7671 it complies with a previous set of regulations and so is deemed to be safe even though safety could be improved. Typical examples of this are: down lights which are not fire rated, no RCD protection on lighting or power circuits Full NICEIC Certification on completion and a competitive quotation to carry out any remedial works (if required)
