Formerly called a Periodic Inspection Report (or PIR). A report to establish the overall condition of all the electrics in a building, stating whether it is satisfactory for continued use and detailing any work that might need to be done. An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) involves one our qualified electricians carrying out a comprehensive test of the condition of a property’s electrical installation. This includes a inspecting the internal connection of electrical points and testing with instruments. A report is then produced outlining whether the installation is satisfactory or unsatisfactory. If the outcome of the test is unsatisfactory our electrician will produce a list of items that will need to be rectified in order for the installation to be certified as satisfactory. They will be coded from 1-3; 1 being the most onerous.

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)
