How do I get an EICR certificate?

You need to book in for an EICR test with a registered electrician. The electrician will then test the electrical installation in your home and issue you with a certificate if it passes or fails. If any faults are found, they will mention in an EICR certificate.

After booking in with your selected date & time, our electrician will visit your property and carry out the required tests on your electrical installation. In most cases, a complete EICR test takes between 45 minutes to One hour.

If any faults are found, they will be fixed there and then charge the extra amount. Once all the tests have been completed, and your electrical installation is up to standard, you will be issued with an EICR certificate. This is valid for five years or depending on the condition of the installation.

What is an EICR (Electrical installation condition report)

EICR stands for Electrical Installation Condition Report. It’s a document that is produced after an electrician has carried out tests on an electrical installation. The report will state whether the installation is safe to use, follow electrical safety regulations, and if any faults were found during eicr inspection of your rental properties or else.

An EICR is sometimes also known as a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR).

What happens if you don’t have an EICR

If you don’t have a valid EICR certificate, your insurance company may not pay out if you make a claim. Landlords are also required to have a valid certificate in place before they can rent out a property like EICR or gas safety certificates. You have to pay a fine of upto £5000 if you don’t have a valid eicr certificate to the local authority.

What happens if it fails?

If your electrical installation fails the EICR test, the electrician will make a note of any faults that need to be rectified by visual inspection in the EICR report. These faults will need to be fixed before a pass certificate can be issued.

You shouldn’t use any electrical equipment that has been deemed unsafe by the electrician. Doing so could put you at risk of injury or even death.
