An EICR is an electrical test carried out on the consumer board to ensure the electrics and wiring are safe. EICRS need to be carried out by a qualified electrician.
Electricians at AJM, are qualified to the highest Test & Inspect standard meaning we are fully compentant in carrying out EICRs in all sectors.
It is recommended that homeowners carry out an EICR test on their home every 5 years.
Recommendations for commercial and industrial sectors vary on many factors.
Electrical inspection condition reports for landlords
As a landlord, you are responsible for the safety of the electrics throughout the property. This includes the installation itself and any electrical appliances you’ve provided. You’ll need to make sure these are safe when a new tenant moves in and maintained for the duration of their tenancy.
As of 1st June 2020, private landlords are now legally required to have an EICR at least every five years.
Portable Appliance Testing is an examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Each appliance is visually checked, then plugged into our PAT tester to gather readings and ensure it is safe.
PAT is usually performed regularly on customers homes, commercial premises, rental properties and industrial warehouses to help protect against accidents or fires from faulty electrical appliances.
Our electricians are fully competent in completing portable appliance test in every sector.
