Electrical testing has been around for almost a century!

And here’s another shocking fact; 4 people every day are injured or killed in fires related to electrical faults?

Not all companies and consumers fully understand the importance of proper electrical testing. Finding and eliminating shock hazards are the primary reason for electrical safety testing.


Does my business need an electrical inspection report?

All electrical systems deteriorate over time so it’s important to inspect and test electrical installations regularly. These have to be done a qualified electrician at the minimum of every five years.

What is a landlord responsible for?

If you are a landlord or an agent you are responsible for all electrical systems on behalf of your tenants. You should arrange an inspection each time there is a change of tenant to ensure nothing has been tampered with.

Do I need an electrical safety check for my home?

Yes definitely!

Every home should have an Electrical Condition Report (EICR). You should get all the electrical wiring and appliances checked by a qualified electrician. This report is a legal requirement if you are letting or selling a property

What will the inspection check?

Earthing and bonding, wiring condition, the serviceability of switches, controls, sockets and condition of appliances and fuse boards. Once completed you will be given an EICR.

If you have a business and are looking to rent out your property then you must have an EICR to comply with Health and Safety regulations. If you are buying or renting a property then you should ask for an EICR to be carried out.
