The items tested in a domestic property are the main electrical fuse box or consumer unit, sockets, lighting, earthing and bonding. If there is anything beyond these that need attention please let us know before the certificate is carried out so we can add it to the areas covered in the testing.
The electrical certificate or EICR is different to an electrical installation certificate. Generally the electrician who has installed the wiring or fuse box would need to provide the installation certificate via their governing body to show the installation has been made in accordance with BS7671. We can only provide an electrical installation certificate for a installation we have contracted to carry out.
Please note accessories attached to the electrical system such as items plugged in or externally attached are not covered unless specifically requested. If a report is unsatisfactory and you require further information please give us a call and we will gladly help. We test a sample of circuits (10%) to provide the necessary readings. If a full test of every point is needed please let us know and we can arrange the full test to be completed.
