EICR Safety Certificate Specialists Essex
Expert EICR Testing for Homeowners, Commercial Property Owners & Landlords
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is an official document that is produced following an assessment to an electrical installation, it could be commercial, industrial or domestic.
Electrical testing in your property is an important part of running any business and this is especially true for businesses which are heavily used by members of the public.
As a landlord, you have a duty to provide housing that is safe and secure. Following the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector Regulations 2020, only experienced electricians like A+C Electrical are qualified to carry out the assessment of your property’s’ electrical systems in Essex and issue your EICR.
Regular electrical testing by qualified electricians, in the form of an EICR is a great, simple and cost effective way to get your premises’ electrics checked and to ensure they are compliant with electrical regulations.
What is the Purpose of EICR Certificates?
After the installation of an electric system, an EICR certificate is needed to prove that the building’s electrical system is fit for purpose. The inspection from our Essex team of qualified electricians will help to uncover any issues your system might have, allowing you to act before you rent, sell or operate on the premises.
An EICR benefits you and your property in the following ways:
It ensures your compliance with the Law
The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector Regulations 2020 states that landlords in England must meet the electrical safety standards outlined in the 18th edition of the Wiring Regulations, which means getting a qualified electrician to assess your electrical systems and provide you with an EICR.
It acts as proof for insurance claims
In the event of an electrical problem that results in damage to your property, you can present your latest EICR as proof that regular testing has been carried out and that you are eligible for an insurance pay out.
It saves you money
As well as making sure your electrics are safe, getting an EICR trained and qualified electrician in Essex to inspect your installations could even save you money. The EICR tests systems and identifies faults. For example, you could have an overloaded circuit, or a piece of equipment that is overheating and therefore wasting energy and money. An EICR can make recommendations for efficiency improvements that you hadn’t thought of or didn’t realise were necessary.

FAQs – EICR Energy Performance Certificates
The regulation recommends that residential properties have EICR inspections carried out every ten years. However, for rental properties, whether they are commercial or residential, it is recommended that an EICR assessment is carried out every five years or whenever there is a change in tenancy. Other reasons for an EICR inspection to be carried out sooner might include when the installation is old, certain environmental conditions and misuse of the electrical system.
