Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

We carry out periodic electrical inspections to provide an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). Changes to regulations in 2020 mean that private landlords in England now must have a periodic inspection carried out on electrical systems in rental properties every 5 years. Commercial properties also require periodic electrical testing every 5 years, while it is 10 years for owner-occupied homes.

Please contact us directly to arrange an electrical condition report in the Stockton-on-Tees area.

During an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report), your local electrician will carry out a range of checks and ensure electrics meet BS 7671. Checks include:

  • Earthing and bonding
  • The extent of wear and tear or damage
  • Suitability, condition and serviceability of consumer units, switches, sockets, light fittings and wiring
  • Changes in the use of the premises and any resulting deficiencies in the electrical installation

Following the inspection, we provide a report which details our findings and recommendations. An EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) is a type of landlord certificate and you must supply this report to any existing and new tenants.

Emergency Lighting Testing

UK fire safety legislation specifies that emergency lighting should undergo full electrical testing once a year. This involves switching off the main light circuit and leaving your emergency lights on for a minimum of 1 hour, up to 3 hours, to see if they are working properly and if any batteries need replacing.

Swift Electrical Services can carry out emergency light testing and servicing for all kinds of properties at a time that suits you. We minimise disruption to daily operations and ensure you are compliant with latest regulations. We record results in your logbook and leave you with relevant documentation.

As part of our electrical services, we also install security lighting for properties in Stockton-on-Tees and the surrounding areas.

Minor Work Certification

When carrying out minor electrical work, our local electricians provide a Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificate (MEIWC). This certifies that any minor work has been subject to proper design and construction and tested according to IET Wiring Regulations.

Minor electrical works cover additions and alterations to existing installations. Some examples are the addition of sockets or lighting points and the relocation of light switches.
