What is the purpose of an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?
One of the most common causes of workplace fires is electrical faults, including defective wiring, overloaded sockets and faulty equipment. So much like a car MOT it is important for you to maintain your electrical installation to ensure the safety, health and welfare for all persons using the building.
An EICR will:
- Provide a full documented summary of the installation condition ensuring compliance with the current British Standards for electrical safety (BS7671 18th edition)
- Provide a record of test results and observations in line with BS7671 and make various recommendations where improvement maybe necessary or beneficial to improve the safety of the installation
- Identify any damage, deterioration, defects and/or conditions which may give rise to danger along with observations for which improvement is recommended.
- Determine, so far as is reasonably practicable, whether the installation is in a satisfactory condition for continued service.
Would I receive a certificate upon completion of the inspection?
When should I have a periodic inspection report?
Most commercial premises, hold an inspection once every five years, however the age and condition of the installation, the use of building, insurance request, change of owner/occupier must all be taken into consideration, and will impact inspection frequency.
Is it a legal requirement to have an EICR carried out periodically?
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 states: “all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger.”
This explicitly places a requirement on the employer to maintain electrical systems adequately to protect employees, visitors and other users of the building. Commercial insurers require evidence of compliance in the form of an EICR completed by an approved contractor.
Would there be disruption to store trading?
If my distribution equipment contains asbestos flash guards, would this equipment have to be replaced to continue with the inspection?
Our engineers have undergone specific training to inspect this type of equipment to ensure safety at all times and meeting the requirements of the HSE.
