Whatever your electrical needs are, BSE|FM are here to help!
Our electrician was onsite to complete the Electrical Inspection Condition Report (EICR). This important document ensures electrical systems comply with BS7671 18th edition 2018 (including amendments). It will highlight if the electrical circuits are in a good condition and safe to use; whether or not there is a risk of electric shock; if any installed electrical work is defective; recommendations for the earthing within the building; the consumer unit will be inspected for its condition and is valid for 5 years.
The frequency of commercial electrical systems and installations is at least once every five years, some higher-risk environments will require more frequent testing including:
- Spa hotels & leisure centres – 3 years
- Hospitals or clinics – 1 year
Domestic systems are slightly different. Changes to the Law for occupied rental properties were introduced by the government this year. All new tenancy agreements from July 2020 are required to have an EICR carried out prior to any occupancy.
Where an existing certificate is already in place for long-term tenancies the law comes into force in April 2021. The EICR document will only require renewal either after the property is vacated or if the same tenant still occupies the property another inspection will need to be completed prior to the expiration date.
Where an existing certificate isn’t in place this will need to be rectified prior to April 2021.
It is recommended that for a domestic homeowner/occupier property the electrical systems are tested and inspected every 10 years. As a vendor you may be required at the point of sale to demonstrate the safety of your electrical installation, therefore it will be our recommendation to have the property inspected in line with the guidance BS7671 guidance 3.
Check your systems now rather than suffer faults later.
