Faulty appliances alone cause £41.6 million of damage, 46 deaths and 2,469 injuries in the UK every year.
That’s why having regular electrical inspections will keep you and your family safe. If you run a business or you’re a landlord with active tenancies, you’re legally required to have EICRs carried out at regular intervals.
What is an EICR?
EICR stands for Electrical Installation Condition Report, which is essentially a complete appraisal of your existing electrical system that must be carried out by a qualified, competent electrician.
If your electrics are deemed safe, you’ll receive a certificate proving this which can then be forwarded on to any relevant bodies or people. If your electrics aren’t up to scratch, you’ll have a set time period to get any necessary remedial work completed.
