In January 2005, Part P of the Building Regulations came into force. These regulations introduced safety standards to electrical installations within domestic properties.

This means that (with few exceptions), any electrical work undertaken in your home must be notified to Building Control for inspection. This includes work carried out professionally or by yourself. A contractor who is registered with a Competent Persons Scheme such as the NICEIC, is able to self-certify the work to ensure it meets the required standards and has been notified to local building control. NICEIC Registered Electricians have been assessed to ensure that they operate to the highest safety standards. If the work you have had done is affected by Part P, your contractor will notify NICEIC of the work. You will receive a Building Compliance Certificate to confirm the work has been registered with your Local Authority Building Control.

Electrical Installation Condition Report in Paddington (EICR) to replace The Periodic Inspection Report (PIR)


Domestic electrical installation condition reports are the new name for Periodic Inspection & Testing reports , here we give some details of what they are about .

What is the aim of a condition report?

You may need a condition report for anumber of reasons, such as when selling or buying a property. Or, you may need areport to find out the condition of an installation after a flood or fire, or at the end of the period recommended in a previous electrical certificate or report.


The five main aims of a condition report are to:

1. Record the results of the inspection and testing to make sure the electrical installation is safe to be used until the next inspection (following any work needed to make it safe);
2. Find any damage and wear and tear that might affect safety, and report it;
3. Find any parts of the electrical installation that do not meet the IEE Wiring Regulations;
4. Help find anything that may cause electric shocks and high temperatures, which can lead to deaths, burns, fires and other injuries;
5. Provide an important record of the installation at the time of the inspection, and for inspection and testing in the future.

Every property should have its electrical installation tested periodically Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and age. It is important to be sure that the safety of users is not put at risk, and that the installation continues to be in a safe and serviceable condition. Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) or Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) will reveal if electrical circuits are being overloaded, find potential hazards within the electrical installation, identify defective DIY work, highlight any lack of earthing or bonding and continue to test the fixed wiring of the installation. This includes checking fuse or circuit breaker ratings and testing the RCD's to make sure they trip under fault conditions. The outcome from the Inspection Report will establish the overall condition of all the electrics and tell you whether it is satisfactory for continued use and will detail any work that might need to be done. This will be graded upon importance.

These procedures test an electrical installation in a building from the main incoming power all the way to the final circuits that could include lighting, power and appliances, a schedule of circuits will also be provided, which is invaluable for a property

We are committed to providing an unbiased report of the condition of any installation we work on. We will recommend any remedial works that are required and will happily carry these out after discussion and consulation with the client.
