The Different Types of Electrical Safety Certificate/Reports

There are four different types of electrical safety certificate or reports:

1 – Electrical Installation Certificate

This is a certificate from an electrician that states that an electrical installation is safe to use at the date and time stated on the certificate. It’s required for all major installations, including consumer units, new circuits and additional lights/sockets in special locations such as the kitchen or bathroom.

2 – Minor Electrical Works Installation Certificate

This is similar to an EIC but is used when the electrical installation is minor such as additional sockets or light fittings not in a special location.

3 – Electrical Installation Condition Report (popular with landlords)

These reports replaced the previous “periodical electrical report” but they are essentially the same thing.

The law states that a landlord must get one of these completed before a new tenant moves in. Homeowners purchasing a new home should ideally have one completed too, especially if the property is old and the wiring hasn’t been updated.

You won’t get a certificate as such but you will receive a condition report.

4 – Part P Notifications

Many electrical projects will require Building Control Notification.

This can be achieved in one of two ways:

1 – By employing a qualified electrician who is a member of a “Part P”  self-certification scheme, these electricians can “self-certify” their work.

2 – By employing a qualified electrician who isn’t part of the scheme and notifying Building Control yourself, there’s usually a fee for this as non-members cannot self-certify.

How much of the installation do you check?

This does depend on weather you have a copy of the last Electrical Conditon Report, but if you don’t then we do a full test and inspect checking 100% of all available sockets, switches and accessories, in addition to the main part of the test in the consumer unit. The only items that will not be inspected are any agreed limitations where something it not accessible. Be aware that some companies offer an EICR only spot check your installation, sometimes as little as 25% checked, which is not very good. You would not like it if you took your car for an MOT and they only check two out of four wheels, and missed other items! Whilst carrying out the report, the power will need to be off for a length of time.

We fully understand how important fixed wire periodic testing is to the safety of your employees, clients and the general public throughout the variation on premises we inspect.

An EICR is a report, not a certificate

An Electrical Installation Condition Report is a report not a certificate. It is very much like an MOT on a wehicle. The report provides an assessment of the in-service condition of an electrical installation against the requirements of the edition of BS7671 at the time of the inspection, the age of the installation does not come in to it, the same level or report is carried out. The report is only valid on the day that it was carried out, as is an MOT, it details the condition at that point in time.

EICR Classification Codes

Each and every observation found in the EICR, will show a level of concern for the safety of the installation, and is given a classification code from the list below.

Code C1 : Danger present. Risk of injury. Immediate remedial action required.
Code C2 : Potentially dangerous. Urgent remedial action required.
Code C3 : Improvement recommended.
