What Is the EICR Test? What Does It Cover?
The EICR test, or Electrical Installation Condition Report, is a thorough inspection and assessment of the electrical systems inside a property. It evaluates the safety and condition of electrical installations, identifying any potential hazards, defects, or non-compliance with regulations.
The EICR test provides a comprehensive overview of the electrical system’s health and highlights any necessary repairs or improvements to ensure safety and compliance. A commercial electrical safety certificate is, in short, an electrical inspection that will:
- Thoroughly identify and assess potential electric shock or fire hazards, ensuring a safe environment.
- Detect and highlight any overloaded or faulty electrical installations that may pose risks or lead to malfunctions.
- Determine the necessity for earthing or bonding, which is crucial for maintaining electrical safety standards.
- Conduct a comprehensive check for outdated installations to ensure compliance with regulations and best practices.
- Address immediate dangers promptly and as a priority with the client’s approval, to mitigate risks effectively.
What Happens During an EICR Test?
When testing and preparing the electrical safety certificate for commercial property, our qualified electricians will carry out the following tasks to ensure a thorough assessment of your electrical system:
- Recording inspection and test results, ensuring the safety of the electrics until the next inspection, and detailing any necessary works.
- Providing a comprehensive record of the installation at the time of inspection, offering you a detailed overview of the electrical system’s condition and compliance status.
- Determining and reporting any wear and tear or damage that may impact the safety of the electrical system.
- Checking for compliance with the IET wiring regulations, ensuring that all installations meet the required standards.
- Examining components that could potentially cause electric shocks or generate high temperatures, mitigating potential risks.

Duties of Landlord Once EICR Is Carried Out
To ensure electrical safety compliance, a safety check every five years for commercial properties and every three years for industrial properties is typically recommended. However, the frequency may vary based on the age and condition of the electrical system.
Upon completion of the commercial electrical installation certificate, landlords are obligated to fulfil specific responsibilities, which include:
- Receiving a written report from the electrician that includes detailed results, instructions for remedial work, and the scheduled date for the next inspection.
- Providing existing tenants with a copy of the report within 28 days of the inspection (effective from April 1, 2021).
- Supplying new tenants with a copy of a recent satisfactory report before the commencement of their tenancy (effective from July 1, 2020).
- Furnishing local housing authorities with a copy of the report within seven days upon their request.
- Retaining a copy of the report until the subsequent inspection and providing a copy to the electrician conducting the subsequent EICR.
It is crucial for landlords to adhere to these regulations, as non-compliance can result in financial penalties of up to £30,000 imposed by local authorities.
