    Frequently Asked Questions

    What exactly is an Electrical Condition Report? (EICR)

    We often like to refer to it as an MOT for your electrics. As time moves on, your electrics can become unsafe and fall behind new safety regulations placing you, or your tenants in an unsafe position.

    Our electricians, who are fully trained to the latest electrical regulations, will initially undertake a full electrical inspection. This involves a full walk-around the premises; removing sockets & switches from the walls, lights from the ceiling, checking for any damaged accessories and ensuring the correct cable and containment have been used.

    Following the inspection and completion of the inspection schedule, we will begin testing. Firstly conducting a number of tests whilst the system is electrically dead, and then carrying out live tests.

    The report will detail the supply characteristics and earthing arrangements, details of incoming cables, bonding to metalwork and a full breakdown of your distribution board; type of cable, method of installation, size of cable and type of amperage rating of your protective devices, followed by the test results for all of this.

    If all is well, you will receive a satisfactory certificate. If not, then we will issue an unsatisfactory certificate with itemised and coded observations. These observations will indicate the relevant BS standards number and one of the following codes:

    C1 – Danger Present. Risk of Injury. Immediate remedial action required.

    C2 – Potentially dangerous – Urgent remedial action required.

    C3 – Improvement recommended.

    FI – Further Investigation without delay.


    How much does an Electrical Condition Report Cost?

    We provide our quotes for Electrical Condition Reports based on a “price per circuit” or a “price per distribution board”.

    This allows us the time to properly test and inspect your electrics and provide a certificate that we are happy to assign our name too.

    Call the Office or fill out our contact form and we will quickly be able to provide you with an accurate figure.

    How long will an Electrical Condition Report Take?

    Domestic reports depend on the size of the property, the amount of circuits, and the access to electrical fixtures.

    On average, a typical house will be able to be tested and inspected by a team in around 4/5 hours with further hours in the office to document the findings. 

    For commercial reports we can provide rough timescales after a discussion about your premisis. 

    What if my Electrical Condition Report fails?

    If we provide you with an unsatisfactory electrical condition report, it will be accompanied with an itemised quotation to rectify the faults, thus allowing us to provide you with a satisfactory certificate. You do not have to use CW Electrical to carry out the remedial works however we often find customers find our quotations competitive and easier to use the same company for the whole process.
