What happens during an EICR test?

An electrical installation condition report (EICR) test is carried out by qualified electricians to identify any potential electrical hazards, defects, or non-compliance with current safety standards. This testing is required to ensure that the electrical installation is fit for continued use.

During the EICR testing, your local electrician will inspect and test all electrical installations and appliances, including the consumer unit, wiring, sockets, switches, and light fittings.

They will also test the earthing and bonding, as well as the operation of residual current devices (RCDs) and circuit breakers.

After completing the EICR testing, the electrician will issue a report to highlight any defects or potential hazards that need to be addressed.

This report will also provide a recommended timeframe for any necessary repairs or upgrades to be carried out.
