Electrical Installation Condition Reports
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is an evaluation of a commercial property’s electrical installation. An EICR examines the condition of electrical installations and systems, and determines if they comply with national safety standards. It must be carried out by a qualified electrician.
After the assessment, landlords and business owners receive a formal document that states if your electrical systems are in good working condition or if any defects or deficiencies require correction.
Does my commercial property require an EICR?
Failure to complete an EICR/ periodic testing makes you liable under UK law for damage or injuries caused by an electrical fire or shock.
Some insurance companies require an EICR as part of their policy in order to prove that you have taken the necessary steps to reduce the risk of an electrical fault in your building. If you need to make a claim because an electrical-related accident happens, the insurance company is more likely to cover damages with an EICR.
How often should EICRs be carried out?
EICRs should be carried out every 1 to 5 years, depending on your premises type. Reasons for more frequent testing include:
New tenancy of a property
The age of the electrical system
The condition of electricals after fire or flooding
The nature of the business
