What is an EICR?
EICR stands for Electrical Installation Condition Report. The report ensures that an existing electrical installation is still in a safe and serviceable condition.
These results are then recorded and the testing will confirm that the original installation is in a safe working condition.
The report will highlight any damage or wear and tear that could affect safety and mention if parts of the installation do not meet current IEE Wiring Regulations.

What is the aim of an Electrical Installation Condition Report?
The five main aims of an EICR are:
• To record the results of the inspection in order to make sure your electrical installations are safe, until the next inspection.
•To find any damage and wear and tear that might affect safety, and have it reported.
•To find any components of the electrical installation that do not meet the IET Wiring Regulations
•To help identify any appliance or object that could cause electric shocks and high temperatures.
•To keep an important record of the installation’s condition at the time of the inspection. This can be used in any future inspection.
