Information About Testing & Inspecting We Carry Out:
Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)
Domestic Electrical Testing Periodic Inspection Reports (PIR) or as it is now known Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).
Periodic Inspection Reports or Electrical Installation Condition Reports is a detailed series of electrical tests and is to assess the safety and suitability of the fixed wiring. Time intervals that testing is required varies and is dependant upon the use of the premises. A new electrical installation within a house would normally require an electrical inspection after 10 years, But if you were a landlord and have tenants moving in and out you may want to get it tested before a new occupant moves in and or when an occupant moves out. Commercial premises would normally be electrically tested every five years.
Landlords Electrical Safety Certificates
The term Landlord Safety Certificate is slightly misleading. There is no actual certificate by this name. It is a Periodic Inspection Report or Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report. Again this is a detailed series of electrical tests and will establish the electrical safety of a rentable property. A full inspection should be carried out and certificated prior to the rental of any property. This should be repeated every five years. An electrical Visual Condition Report should then be conducted annually.
Visual Condition reports
Are a lesser inspection but is still an official NICEIC certificate.
A visual condition report is a set series of tests and will establish the general safety of an electrical installation. This will highlight if any broken or damaged switches, sockets etc. or if illegal modifications have been made to the wiring.

Portable Appliance Testing, or PAT Testing, is a common service to maintain electrical appliances.

Image to the left: Live cables found behind socket with cut Earth and live conductors the customer had all their power trip off 2 years prior. An
electrician came and got the power back on and this is how he left it. We went there to do an EICR Inspection prior to them selling their house. The third cable was carrying the load and consequently burning out. The close up image to the right shows burnt cable & other faults that we have come across when doing routine testing. This shows the important of having your property or business place tested.
