Electrical Inspection Condition Reports
Any electrical installation will suffer wear and tear over its lifetime. Just as you regularly service and MOT your car, so you should get a professional electrician to inspect and test your electrical systems. Regular servicing keeps you in control, and could you save you the cost of full rewiring.
The commonest electrical safety report is the Electrical Inspection Condition Report (EICR, formerly PIR ). These are used in a range of situations, including by prospective homebuyers and domestic and commercial landlords. Please see our FAQs below for more information.
