EICRS for homes and businesses from just £190
EICRs, also known as fixed wire testing or periodic inspection reports, is a procedure that tests and studies electrical installations and systems in a building to determine their condition and ensure they are safe, compliant with current regulations, and fit for purpose.
The EICR itself is the official document that will outline if any repairs or faults have been found and other advice about issues that need to be rectified to bring the system into line with current standards.
Our domestic EIC reports and commercial EIC reports start from just £190 and testing will normally take from just a few hours to around a day. Commercial installation may take longer. We will complete any electrical safety audits with minimal disruption and can organise for out-of-hours testing for our business customers.

Thorough commercial condition reports near Elstree (HA7)
Because wiring and electrics can deteriorate over time, regular electrical testing is essential. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act and Electricity at Work Regulations, periodic EICRs is a legal requirement for all commercial and industrial premises. As part of this act, it is your legal responsibility to ensure your electrical installations are in a safe condition and do not compromise the health and safety of your employees, or you risk injury to staff or members of the public, harsh fines, and invalid insurance.
All EIC tests consist of a visual inspection, dead testing, and live testing and it will look for various issues that may affect the system and its safety. All commercial installation should be tested periodically depending on the function of the building, age of the installation and advice from your electrician.
Do I need an EICR?
If you have ever wondered if you need an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report), the answer is yes. Whether you own your own home or a property, which you rent out, or you are responsible for a non-domestic property, an EICR is always necessary.
Home-owners: Whilst it may not be a legal requirement within owner-occupied homes to have an EICR, home owners should have their electrics tested regularly, to ensure they are safe to use and are functioning correctly. This will minimise the chance of electrical faults, which could lead to electric shocks or fire and even be a risk to life. EICRs are often recommended during the house buying and selling process.
Businesses: Employers are legally responsible for the health and safety of their employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. They are also required to safeguard staff against the risk of injury sustained from electricity used during work conditions under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.
Landlords: Landlords have a duty of care towards their tenants under The Landlords and Tenants Act 1985, and this ensures checking the electrics within their rental properties are safe at the start of a tenancy and maintained throughout. EICRs for both landlords and businesses provide proof that they have met their legal obligations and are often required for insurance purposes.
