What Type of premises need Electrical Certification?
Is Your EICR Certificate Up To Date?
Do you have a current, in-date EICR - electrical installation condition report? If not — or you’re not sure — call us right away on 0800 999 8009 because you’re breaching your obligations under the Electricity At Work Act 1989 which is a legal requirement for all businesses.
It states you must maintain your building and the only way to show the buildings electrical systems having been maintained is by carrying out frequent electrical testing. So having a current Electrical certificate is a must for all business owners, directors and managers. Do you need your electrical inspection?
Is Your EICR Certificate Satisfactory?
If you have a current EICR ( electrical installation condition report ), is it labelled ‘satisfactory’ or Unsatisfactory? For you to be legally compliant under the Electricity at Work Act 1989, your certificate must show the status of your electrics as ‘satisfactory’ after its Electrical Installation Condition report.
If it doesn’t and it is labelled Unsatisfactory, this means that Code1 and Code 2 defects have been listed in the defects schedule of your electrical Installation Condition Report - call us on 0800 999 8009 and we’ll pinpoint and fix what’s gone wrong with an expert electrical inspection.
Does Your EICR Have Code 1 & 2 Defects?
Any Code 1 defects listed on your EICR certificate are serious and require immediate attention as they pose a present danger, and there’s a risk of electrocution or electrical fire. Any Code 2 defects although not as serious, must still be addressed right away, as they point to a potentially dangerous issue with your electrical installation. Call us now on 0800 999 8009 as should anyone be injured through electrocution or electrical fire, as the business owner, director or manager could face prosecution and your insurance could also be invalid
Does Your EICR Have Code 3 Defects?
Not quite as serious as Code 1 or 2 defects, any Code 3 defects on your EICR certificate are recommendations and must still be addressed before your next EICR Test date. Public buildings are generally 1year and Commercial buildings 3-5 year.
These recommendations point out the installation is not necessarily dangerous, but it does not comply with the current version of the regulations.
Call us now on 0800 999 8009 and let’s get a pre-planned rectification program in place.

How Much does an EICR Cost?
The cost of an EICR ( electrical installation condition report ) can vary based on the size and complexity of the property. A small one-bedroom apartment may range from £160 to £200, while a sizable commercial building could be significantly more expensive, potentially reaching several thousand pounds. Location can also influence the cost, with prices typically higher in major cities like London and other metropolitan areas.
Who can carry out an EICR - Electrical Installation Condition Report ?
