EICRs and electrical inspection reports near you in Sheerwater (KT16)
Do you need an EICR certificate? EICR reports (Electrical Installation Condition Reports), formerly called Periodic Inspection Reports are recognised certificates that are drawn up after a registered electrician has thoroughly tested the electrical system. EICRs are required for domestic, commercial and industrial buildings, with different requirements.
EICRs are also recommended before buying a new home and for landlords and rental properties. During EICRs, we will carry out a thorough test of all the fixed wire circuits, including RCD tests, insulation resistance and polarity.
We also complete thorough visual checks to assess for signs of wear and tear. Damaged electrical fittings and accessories will be identified and reported. If anything dangerous or hazardous is found, then the installation will be declared as ‘unsatisfactory’. This means remedial work is required to remove the risks to the premises and we are always happy to quote to do this work. Read our blog about electrical safety in old properties.
We can offer you free advice and no-obligation quotes at any time. We keep our prices very low and competitive our EICRs start from just £190.
Ottershaw commercial condition reports
All electrical installations are not immune to aging and will degrade over time. As part of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, employers need ensure their staff and visitors are protected against the risk of electrical faults.
Insurance companies request proof of EICRs to ensure premises meet current regulations. How often to have an EICR will normally be between every year and every five years, depending on the use of the premises.
We provide commercial condition reports for offices, shops, restaurants, pubs, hotels, clubs, cinemas, theatres, factories and many other properties. We also provide commercial condition reports in Lambeth and Kennington.
