What is an EICR?

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a thorough test of your property’s electrical installation involving both a range of visual checks and physical testing.

The test will identify any damage, defect or deterioration in the electrical installation that needs to be remedied. The test can reveal the following issues:

  • Overloading or overheating of circuits
  • Potential risks of electric shock or fire
  • Defective electrical work
  • Insufficient earthing
  • Outdated or damaged wiring
  • Old and dangerous fuse boards


It will also involve a test of your fuse board and ensure you have a Residual Current Device (RCD) that operates efficiently to prevent harm.

Once your test has been completed, we will provide a test certificate. The report will outline any damage, defects, deterioration or dangerous parts of your electrical system. Should any issues occur these will be coded down.



Any faults found during the inspection will be graded by their severity when listed in the report.

C1, C2 and F1 codes must be resolved within 28 days. Once any necessary remedial work has been carried out, we will reissue you with a satisfactory report.

There are 4 codes as follows:


Danger is present, there is a risk of injury. Immediate action is required


Potentially dangerous, remedial action is urgent


Improvement recommended, but not required


Further Investigation Required


An RCD (Residual Current Device) is designed to automatically switch off electricity if it detects a fault. It protects against the risk of electrocution and fire in the fraction of a second.

An RCD is constantly monitoring the flow of electrical currents. If it detects an unintended pathway, such as a person touching a live wire, the circuit will switch off quickly, reducing the risk of death and significant injury.

Information from the Electrical Safety Council revealed that almost ALL electrocutions in the home and 20% of fires with an electrical origin could have been prevented by having RCD protection.

Old style fuse boards do not have RCD protection built-in so it’s a sensible safety precaution to upgrade if you have not already done so.
