Ensuring Electrical Integrity

Safeguarding your electrical systems

    An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) covers the results of a periodic inspection & test of your electrical installations and systems. It is often conducted in parallel with Portable Appliance Testing (PAT). It's effectively your shield against potential electrical hazards and unnoticed systems degradation over time.

    While an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is not a statutory requirement for private householders, its significance cannot be understated. For London business owners and landlords however, your premises will need an EICR for legal compliance, and not just for your peace of mind. Wandsworth Electricians cater to both and provide EICR inspection certification for both residential and commercial properties.

    The Landlord & Tenants Act 1985, coupled with the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, outlines the responsibilities of landlords and employers for the safety of tenants and employees. Furthermore, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 mandate the adoption of precautions against electrical risks in work activities. A current EICR report demonstrates that you take this responsibility seriously.

    Granting you continued peace of mind

    Shielding you from system degradation

      Electrical systems naturally degrade or deteriorate over time due to wear and tear. This underlines the importance of EICRs performed at regular intervals. In line with British Standard BS 7671 (IET Wiring Regulations), businesses and landlords are advised to conduct EICRs every 5 years. It is may also be mandated by your insurance company, for compliance with the terms of your property insurance.

      At Wandsworth Electricians, we delve deep into your electrics to uncover latent faults—overloaded circuits, incorrectly installed circuits without proper earthing or bonding—that could potentially lead to fire or shock risks. Our visual assessment identifies broken sockets, damaged cables, and more. Urgent remedial work can then be scheduled, ensuring your electrical system aligns with contemporary safety standards.

      Following assessment, our engineers compile a comprehensive report, highlighting any damaged or defective conditions, and potential risks. If remedial work is needed to meet the stringent safety criteria for a "pass," Wandsworth Electricians can furnish an updated or subsequent report. Following successful inspection, we present you with an EICR Certificate of Safety, granting you the peace of mind that your electrical infrastructure is secure.
