Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) & Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (E.I.C.R.) previously known as a Periodic Inspection Report (P.I.R) is like a M.O.T for the mains power electrical installation and wiring of your property.

Some properties are required by law to conduct an E.I.C.R. at set intervals, depending on the type of use and if the public have access.

There is no obligation for private domestic properties which are not rented out to have a valid E.I.C.R. but many property owners employ the services of a qualified electrician to conduct an E.I.C.R. to be aware in what condition the installation is.
A report is only issued once all the circuits have been visually inspected and electrically tested.

If the installation is considered to be in a good condition and complies with the regulations a ‘Satisfactory’ certificate is applied which gives the property a good bill of health until the next inspection.

A date for the next inspection will also be entered on the report, and depending upon the condition of the installation and the purpose of use.

If the property does not meet requirements an ‘Unsatisfactory’ report will be issued, with a list of remedial works that need to be fixed before a the installation can pass the test.

If you are about to conduct a major renovation project it is advisable to conduct an E.I.C.R to give you an accurate picture of the condition of the electrical installation and wiring in the building. If you need to some works on your installation it would probably be better to do so before you finalise all your decorating works.

Remember: – electricity can be dangerous. Overheated cables can start fire. Don’t risk your own safety as well as of the other occupants of the property. Maintain your electrical installation in safe condition.

wes electrical  have a great reputation for conducting electrical certification to all types of property, both domestic and commercial, with minimum disruption to the tenants and owners.
