What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report - EICR?

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a crucial assessment ensuring the safety and compliance of your electrical installation. It’s mandatory by law and often a stipulation of your insurance company. EICRs are conducted by approved electricians who have gained further qualifications and experience than that of their basic electrical training.

This comprehensive inspection helps identify any potential hazards, faults, or non-compliance issues. STF Electrical Ltd offers reliable EICR services in Liverpool and the surrounding areas, to ensure the electrical safety of your property.

Our Mission is "to Provide a Friendly, Reliable Service with Quality and Safety as Standard".

Why do I Have to get my Electrical Installation Tested?

The EAWR Statutory Regulations 1989 states that we must maintain an electrical installation throughout its lifespan.  

The inspection and testing that is done during an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a way of identifying problems within an electrical  installation’s fixed wiring, making sure you are staying compliant with the EAWR.

In addition to this, it is worth noting that many insurance providers stipulate these reports are carried out in order for them to maintain your insurance cover.

What Paperwork Should I Receive After I have had an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) Completed?

On completion of an EICR you will be issued with a NICEIC Electrical Installation Condition Report.  

The report will either be Unsatisfactory or Satisfactory, depending on the severity of the defects found (if any). If Satisfactory there will be no further action required and your report will be valid until your next test date (read on to find test intervals by property type/use)

If your report has an unsatisfactory outcome, you will be provided with the report, which will highlight any defects found along with a free quotation to rectify said defects.

Do I have to take Action if I Receive an Unsatisfactory EICR?

While EICR recommendations aren’t legally binding, neglecting them can lead to legal consequences. If an accident occurs due to unaddressed recommendations, you may face criminal prosecution, both personally and for your business, for failing to meet your legal responsibilities under The EAWR Statutory Regulations 1989.

What do the Codes Mean on an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?

When you are issued with an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) the electrician may have highlighted some defects within your fixed wiring installation.  Each of these defects will be assigned one of four codes to highlight its severity. We have listed these codes below with a description of each.  It is worth noting that any C1, C2 or FI codes will automatically constitue an unsatisfactory report.

C1 - Danger present

Immediate remedial action required. Risk of injury or death

More Frequently Asked Questions Relating to Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs)

Yes in order to work safely and comply with The EAWR Statutory Regulations 1989 our electricians will need to isolate the power to your installation.

We appreciate that loss of power can be a massive inconvenience, therefore we ask if you can make us aware of any power that cannot be interrupted during the booking stage, we can then make arrangements to allow for this 

Certainly, many customers are surprised by the number of unknown faults in their electrical installations, particularly those that are relatively new in their minds.

This varies, depending on; property type, size, use, installation size, accessibility etc.

A good rule of thumb is to allow for 30 mins per circuit and 1 hour per board in order to carry out a proper inspection and test.
